Color Improvisations 2: International Exhibition of Contemporary Quilts

Color Improvisations 2 is an international exhibition featuring 50 large, improvisational quilts by 43 artists from Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Scotland, and the United States curated by Nancy Crow, one of the most celebrated and influential quilt artists of the past forty years.

All of the quilts Nancy Crow chose for this exhibition are large abstract compositions that were machine-pieced, primarily from hand-dyed fabrics, and also quilted by machine. Each work was made specifically for this exhibition. All pieces measure between 80” x 80” and 90” x 90”.

The Springfield Museum of Art will be the final venue for Color Improvisations 2 and the only North American venue that will exhibit all fifty quilts.
