Homestead National Monument of America is excited to welcome Sue King as our next Artist-in-Residence. King is a nationally recognized textile artist from Ohio who focuses on figurative and portrait work. With a lifelong love of the outdoors, she interprets the cultural and historical significance of our amazing National Parks through the use of textiles, dying, printing and stitch. She was the 2013 Artist in Residence at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado and 2014 Artist in Residence at Agate Fossil Beds National Monument in Nebraska. She looks forward to sharing her work with Homestead's visitors during her upcoming residency.

Don't miss this opportunity to work with such a unique and talented artist! Join her for a public program at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 28 at the Education Center. Attendees will learn about the art of quilting, and how the quilts made by women homesteaders have informed King's own work. Visitors will also view a sampling of the artist's work and have an opportunity to make their own silk-screened fabric postcard as a memento of their visit to Homestead National Monument of America.
