MAN MADE [Virtual]

Wednesday • May 6th • 6:30pm CDT

While we can’t welcome you to the Iowa Quilt Museum, we’re doing our best to bring the quilts and the stories to you!

Join us on Wednesday, May 6th, at 6:30pm CDT, via Zoom for a virtual program. We’ll be joined by three of the contributors to our Man Made exhibit—Mike Ellingsen, Scott Hansen, & Scott Flanagan—and exhibit curator Tony Jacobson.

Tune in to meet the artists and curator, hear their stories and see their quilts. We are offering this conversation as a FREE event, with donations encouraged to continue the vibrancy of the museum and our programs.
