Artist’s Quilts Pay Tribute to African-American Women


The quilts of Baltimore-based artist Stephen Towns resemble luminous paintings. In his first museum exhibition “Stephen Towns: Rumination and a Reckoning,” the textile work sparkles and shimmers with glass beads, metallic thread, rich colors and translucent tulle. Through 10 quilts on display at the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA), the visual artist tells the story of the slave rebellion Nat Turner led in August 1831 as well as the deeper story of how slavery and the labor of African-American women shaped America.
