Yvonne Wells: Stitched Stories w/ Erin Monroe & Laura Leonard

Self-taught artist Yvonne Wells (b. 1939) made her first quilts to keep her family warm, later turning to quilting as an artform to visually address her religious, historical, and sociopolitical experiences in the American South. Erin Monroe, Krieble Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture, and Laura Leonard, Art Bridges Project Coordinator, discuss Wells’s quilt The Great American Pastime: The Negro Baseball League (2009), on loan from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
