Both exhibitions are on view through January 23, 2022.
Handstitched Worlds draws parallels between quilt making and cartography. Both quilts and maps are built upon established systems that use color, pattern, and symbols to create compositions from a network of interlocked parts. Both quilts and maps are infused with history and memory— they record and represent traditions, experiences, relationships, beliefs, and future aspirations. Spanning the nineteenth to the twenty-first centuries, this collection of quilts features a range of materials, motifs, and techniques.
A View from Above will delight visitors with lavishly illustrated maps drawn in a way that gives the viewer a sense of looking down at a city, as if they were flying above it. Popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s, “bird’s eye-view” or panoramic maps represented cities and villages across the country. This exhibition features panoramic maps from the Historical Society’s collections, including locations in Washington, as well as a selection of tools used for surveying, mapmaking, and commercial illustration. 1911 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma,
