If you love quilts, you will not want to miss this program! Art Deco and Art Nouveau Quilts of the Early 1900’s, with Meta Van Nostran.

Where:  Southeast Ohio History Center, 24 W. State Street, Athens, Ohio.


This presentation with a trunk show shares insight into the historic art movements of Art Nouveau and Art Deco and their influence on quiltmaking in the early to middle 1900’s.

In the 1920’s, there was a radical change in the design and color of quilts.  Even traditional patterns took on a new look.  At the same time, there were also radical changes in the world of the Fine Arts.
