Nancy Crow is considered the world’s foremost art quilter, whose work has been instrumental in promoting quiltmaking from traditional craft to an art medium in its own right. Her quilts are on permanent display at several world-class art museums, including The Smithsonian Institute, The American Craft Museum, and The Museum of American Folk Art. From New York to Strasbourg to London to Tokyo, her quilts have been included in almost every major exhibition of quilt art over the last twenty years. She is a Fellow of the American Crafts Council, a member of the Quilters’ Hall of Fame, and a recipient of the prestigious National Living Treasure Award. Nancy lives in Columbus, Ohio.
"As an activist, teacher, and curator, Nancy Crow was a catalyst and prime mover of the art quilt movement . . . . Today, she stands at the forefront of innovative quiltmaking and she is one of the premier colorist in contemporary American art, no matter what medium one surveys. This new book, a chronicle of Crow's work after 1988, shows her transformation." Jean Robertson, The Smithsonian Archives of American Art
