Quilting Wichita Falls Together
Yesterday Liz Langdon and I presented a workshop at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art in Wichita, Texas, for students from Midwestern State University on a collaborative project between the Museum and NTIEVA, the North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts at the University of North Texas.

Our initial project, Pride in Place, has evolved into an upcoming exhibition, Quilting Wichita Falls Together, showcasing the art quilts of Wichita Falls native, Marion Coleman.

|Marion Coleman's contemporary quilts use photographic images and fabric to express memories and history.|
This is one of the new quilts Coleman created for this exhibit. She is also going to visit four schools while in Wichita Falls, to work with students from every grade level.
