Barn Quilt Exhibition at Billings Farm & Museum

April 04, 2024 - December 01, 2024

Barn Quilt Exhibition, April 4 – December 1
Billings Farm & Museum is bringing the rural artistry of barn quilts to our scenic site for the 2024 Barn Quilt Exhibition from April 4 – December 1. 

Barn quilting recreates the concept of quilt squares on durable mediums such as plywood. These squares, starting at 4 feet by 4 feet and up, feature striking colors and simple geometric designs.  Collaborating with Vermont artists as well as artisans from the Chelsea Barn Quilt Project and Barn Quilts of Northern Vermont, who have been working to highlight barn quilting in Vermont, each space will host a uniquely crafted piece inspired by nature, math, agriculture, and the history of the Billings Farm site.

Guests can wander through the farm and take in the boldly painted patterns that will adorn historic barns and buildings.  As a working dairy farm and historical landmark, Billings Farm offers a contextual richness to the exhibition.  The Barn Quilt Exhibition also extends the traditional fiber quilt show at Billings Farm, adding another dimension for visitors to engage with contemporary art within the framework of an American art tradition.  Visit billingsfarm.org/barn-quilt-exhibition for hours and more information.
