Mary Lee Bendolph: Quilted Memories

Mary Lee Bendolph: Quilted Memories

From October 29, 2019 to December 29, 2019

This survey exhibition will include approximately 30 quilts created by artist Mary Lee Bendolph from the 1950s through recent years. The artist, who is from Gee’s Bend, Alabama, comes from a family with generations of talented quilt makers. Bendolph worked in textile-related fields until 1992, when she retired and then had more time to devote to quilting. A 1999 Los Angeles Times Pulitzer Prize-winning article entitled “Crossing Over: Mary Lee’s Vision” profiled her life up to that point.
