In Living Color: A Quilter's Journey


For adults held via Zoom. Watch the recording on YouTube.

Presented through a series of narrative and graphic quilts, Glendora Simonson reveals glimpses of her life as an African American woman, teacher, artist, activist and crafter. An educator by profession, Ms. Simonson taught special education students, then worked collaboratively with psychologists and social workers to diagnose learning differences. In addition to being a voracious reader, Ms. Simonson also enjoyed a variety of crafting and textile activities. Quiltmaking proved to be the perfect medium to express creatively and contemplate social events.
