Beginning the first six weeks of the 2011 fall semester art students at Post High School studied the history and art of quilts. The study included written critiques of quilt designs as well as designing and constructing fabric quilt blocks. The students were inspired by a DVD recorded by Zoe Kirkpatrick and Doris Giddens, local women who have quilted together for over 30 years.
To complete the class requirements, the PHS art students transfered individual, original quilt block designs to a 15' x 15' "quilt" art installation in the parking lot of the Heritage House. Work began at the end of September and was recently completed.
"We are very pleased with this project and the resulting public art installation," said Millie Sentell, president of the Caprock Cultural Association, sponsor of the event. We appreciate funding from the Maxine Durrett Earl Charitable Foundation that made this possible."
