ARTS Center in Clemson to unveil Quilt Block

The ARTS Center of Clemson is hosting the unveiling celebration of an outdoor quilt block that is part of the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail.  The community is invited to join in the unveiling celebration that will be on August 13, from 6:30pm to 9pm.  The outdoor quilt square, inspired by a textile quilt square done by Anna Willis, shows an African village. It is a complex work, with people, animals, and huts. The outdoor quilt square is painted on an 8 foot X 8 foot wooden panel. It was painted, in detail, by members of the Clemson Artist Guild and the men and women who are full time volunteers with the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail organization.  The outdoor quilt square will be a permanent fixture on The ARTS Center building. Our unveiling celebration is open to all members of our community.  Anna Willis will be at The ARTS Center for the unveiling, with many of her quilts on display, to meet and talk with everyone. The original textile quilt will also be on display. Martha File, Chair of the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail will provide an overview of the American Barn Trail Movement and the Upstate of South Carolina’s participation.
