Maine Quilts: 250 Years of Comfort and Community


Lewiston-Auburn SC Presents: "Food for Thought" - September 15, 2020, 2 pm


Laurie LaBar, curator of Maine’s largest history museum, the Maine State Museum, will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the museum and the process of creating exhibits, on Tuesday, September 15 at 2:00 p.m. Laurie tells stories in three dimensions, specifically about Maine’s people and the way they lived in the past. Her talk will focus on her upcoming exhibit and book by the same name, Maine Quilts: 250 Years of Comfort and Community. This will be the featured exhibit to celebrate the museum's reopening. DownEast Books will release LaBar's companion book in March. If you always wondered what a curator does, come check it out!
