Centennial Quilt Display
Homestead Education Center
April 1, 2018 - April 30, 2018


During the 2015-2017 seasons, National Parks across America displayed 13 art quilts, created to celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service. The quilts were created by Fiber Works, a group of textile artists from the Lincoln-Omaha, Nebraska area. The artists were inspired by their favorite national park site. The quilts have been on a year-long tour of the 13 chosen parks.

The quilts are now set to return to Homestead National Monument of America where they will make their final display during the month of April. The quilts will be on display in the Homestead Education Center. We invite you to Homestead to view the quilts any time during normal business hours. Don't miss your last opportunity to view these quilts in person!
