Special exhibit --- Lost Heroes Art Quilt ---
First exhibit in Colorado as part of the National Tour will be at Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum from May 1 - May 10.
RMQM will be the first of three Colorado locations in the national tour for exhibiting this 15 foot quilt honoring America's fallen heroes in Iraq & Afghanistan. After it leaves RMQM it will go to the CO Capital and then to Fine Arts Museum in Co Springs (AFA unable to host event due to security --- so this is the closest off-sife venue for AFA). We are very excited to be hosting this magnificent quilt and honoring fallen heroes, especially those from Colorado. If you want more information, check this website!
