Quilt exhibit opens in Harrisonburg

This week, the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg opened the “Worldwide Threads—Eastern Asia” exhibit to the public, which is now on display through Dec. 19.

“With travel still so restricted, we are excited to bring a small piece of Asia to Virginia,” said museum executive director Susan Farmer.

This collection of artworks, exploring the essence of Eastern Asian culture, is the first in the series of global art scrolls, a release stated.

Main Street, Harrisonburg.
