Story Quilt Exhibit
Creator: Lori W     Date Created: 11/28/2017

The five quilts pictured in this album are currently on display in the lobby of the Fresh Meadows Community Library. They were produced over the course of a six-session workshop in which participants interviewed each other about their family migration stories, designed quilts that visually represent those stories, and programmed clips of their interviews into electronic devices called LilyPads, which were then sewn into the quilts. Each quilt contains four short audio clips that can be activated by pressing buttons in the fabric; in this album, each quilt photo is followed by its four recordings.
