Mount Holyoke College Art Museum Exhibit: Piece Together

January 23 through May 27. Mary Lee Bendolph (b. 1935) is celebrated for her bold compositions and improvisational quilting style. This exhibition, which is the first to examine works from five decades of Bendolph’s life, considers her quilts as objects with many meanings. At once functional necessities and aesthetic wonders, many of the quilts on view are also family documents and symbolic memorials. OPENING LECTURE Wednesday, January 31, 5:30 p.m.
