Along the Spice Route, which is curated by Ann Reardon and Paula Golden, features art quilts on the theme of spices, celebrating the marvelous flavors that
make our food interesting and appetizing. Many of these spices have also been used for other purposes—including “curing” baldness, reducing indigestion, acting as antibacterial agents, and to ward off evil spirits. Along the Spice Route offer a glimpse into spice markets, shipping routes, and caravan trails.
