Got back late last night from San Jose. Sunday was the last day of the exhibition, and yesterday the volunteers and museum staff had the show down in quick order. I was on the road with all the quilts by 1:30 and got home a little after midnight. I didn't stop often, Lulu was patiently waiting at home, but I did have time to savor the whole experience of exhibiting at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.
It was a great experience, from start to finish, and I have nothing but good things to say about the museum and everyone who is involved. Such a nice group of people, and highly capable. Special thanks to exhibitions curator Deborah Corsini, collections curator Nancy Bavor, executive Director Christine Jeffers, and all the museum staff and volunteers. Job well done!
It was such an honor to fill the museum with quilts for three months, and to bring so many people in the front doors. I think everyone enjoyed it, but nobody enjoyed it as much as me. Sharing the quilts- that's what it's all about! I look forward to many returns to San Jose.
