E Pluribus Unum II: Cultures in Cloth is now open for viewing in the Quiltart.com galleries. A remarkable collection of art quilts, these works reflect the many cultures that comprise our nation, articulating our motto: E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One).
Imagine the journeys of the people whose stories are depicted in this exhibit. Whether they traveled the world or were native to these lands, each had personal trials to overcome in their path to America.
As you wander through our online gallery, consider E Pluribus Unum and how these simple words played a role in making this country the great republic that has offered refuge and prosperity to so many.
We are all individual in our beliefs, yet as one we understand that we are all human, that we can grow together under the liberties of our Constitution, that we all strive for the same goal, a better life for our children and our children’s children.
Also available is the workshop, Cultural Cloth: Exploring and Expressing Our Cultural Histories.
We would love to hear from you! Please return here after viewing the exhibit and share your thoughts, comments and EPU II experiences in the comment section below. We each have our own ‘American’ story to tell.
