Online Exhibition: Ongoing
A growing, diverse, online collection of quilted art and craft. All display a focus on preserving our American democracy, our Constitutional values, and our place in the world — in response to the current Administration in Washington, DC. We hope this site will be a touchstone for the artists, quilters, and viewers, creating a sense of community and hope, and inspiring advocacy and engagement. In the spirit of democracy, we accept and display images of quilts and quilted items with no fee required, and no size limitations.
You may contribute art quilts, modern quilts, traditional quilts, postcards to legislators, tote bags, purses, and wearable art. We welcome 2-D and 3-D work, too: sculpture, vessels, stuffed dolls or toys, and mixed media art that includes quilting.
We will respect the request of any artist who wants their work recorded as “By Anonymous,” and when the name of the quilter/artist is provided, we will encourage viewers — individuals and organizations — to use the work as credited to the quilter/artist, to advance our democratic values and the Resistance. However, United We Quilt cannot promise protections for your intellectual property.
Deadline: December 31, 2022
