Would you like to know more about what the Friends do? Please join us for Friends 101, a conversation about the history, activities, and opportunities available through the Friends. Whether you’re new to the organization or have been around for a while, we’d love to see you there! This free event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 1, from 11 to 11:45AM followed by a brief tour of the new textiles exhibit, which is featured in this newsletter’s Collection Connection. It is a special opportunity to learn about the art and context of 19th – early 20th century American quilts from a nationally renowned expert, Mia’s Assistant Curator of Textiles, Nicole LaBouff. To attend please call the Friends Office at 612.870.3045.
