The Many Faces of Jerusalem

Revised-Qult-Banner

In 2012 to celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Israel Quilters Association put out a call to artists world-wide to attend the conference and to enter a quilt to be shown in an exhibit to be held during the conference.  The exhibit, titled The Many Faces of Jerusalem, was exhibited on the BYU campus on the Mount of Olives, and is coming to the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art in October 2014.

The Quilts chose Jerusalem for its international, multicultural character. The Capital of Israel, Jerusalem is holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims. People of many ethnic groups, nationalities and religions live together nestled among the history, architecture, and legends that span thousands of years.  The Israel Quilts Association invited artists to enter quilts in this exhibit; quilts that expressed their ideas, hopes, memories, and dreams of Jerusalem. The result is a multicolored and multicultural feast for the eyes; the textiles of dream.
