Misericordia University is hosting the exhibition “Forced to Flee: Contemporary Quilts,” in the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery until June 6.

In association with SAQA Global Exhibitions, this exhibition consists of 36 quilts created by textile and fiber artists from around the world who have used this medium to address the global migration crisis. Curated by Dr. Susan Beryl Marks and presented by Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.

On Tuesday, April 13, at 7:00 p.m., the public is invited to visit with artists from the exhibition at a Virtual Artists Roundtable via Zoom. Artists will talk about how they convey concern about the global refugee crises through the medium of textiles. Please register for this free event at tinyurl.com/MUQuilts.
