Infinite Variety: Red and White Quilts
This app compliments the exhibition “Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts,” presented by the American Folk Art Museum at the Park Avenue Armory, New York City, March 25–30, 2011. The app guides users through the installation of 650 red and white quilts, all of which are on loan from Joanna S. Rose’s collection of more than 1,000 American quilts, in the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall. The app includes images of each of these 650 bedcovers, as well as statements by collector Joanna S. Rose, guest curator Elizabeth V. Warren, and Maria Ann Conelli and Stacy C. Hollander of the American Folk Art Museum.
The app also features the installation floor plan and elevation renderings created by exhibition design firm Thinc Design, which help the on-site user locate individual quilts in the exhibition.
