To support planning for Patterns in Abstraction: Aesthetic Innovation in African American Quilts, an exhibition showcasing the High Museum of Art’s holdings of quilts by African American women. Patterns in Abstraction features quilts that are variations on Birds in the Air and Housetop themes, two quilt patterns with origins in the nineteenth century that are geometric distillations of natural phenomenon and human-made environments. An exhibition publication is planned.
