The Michigan State University Museum and the MSU College of Human Medicine have launched a "Quilts and Health" Project intended to: a) build a community of individuals who make, use, and study health-related quilts; b) investigate specific uses of quilts in health; and c) create a digital repository of quilts and stories related to health and well-being.
Dr. MacDowell received her B.F.A., M.F.A. and Ph.D. from Michigan State University and has been employed as a curator since 1977 at the MSU Museum. There, in addition to her curatorial activities, she has served as coordinator of the Michigan Traditional Arts Program, a state folk art partnership of the MSU Museum and the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and is a founding director of the Great Lakes Folk Festival.
Join your friends to hear about quilts and health. The "Healing Hands" quilt will be on display at the meeting as an example of health quilts. This quilt was made by the MSUCC Spartan Quilters for one of our own members.
