Teresa Wong will give a free lecture on Saturday, October 3, at 3 pm on the history of Japanese quilts.
The lecture and PowerPoint presentation will highlight the fascinating story from her new book, Japanese Contemporary Quilters and Quilts: The Story of an American Import.
Museum admission is free beginning at 2 p.m.
Forty years ago, Japanese quiltmakers were heavily influenced by American quilts and quilters. Today, there are two to three million quilters in Japan, making it the largest concentration of quilters outside the U.S.
Wong’s lecture will take visitors through this remarkable transformation and explain how it took place.
In 2014, Wong was named the first Faith P. and Charles L. Bybee Foundation Scholar by the Bybee Foundation and the Texas Museum. The honor was awarded in recognition of her research on Japanese quilts in conjunction with her Master of Liberal Studies at Rice University.
