A Whole Other World - Subculture Craft

It is not everyday that I get to visit an Art Museum and find a piece of mine hanging inside on display, yet that is exactly what happened this August when I visited the Racine Art Museum, or RAM as it is called.

My venture to Wisconsin was to visit a good friend, whom I hadn't seen for over a year; but I was able to make a pit stop to check out the exhibit too.  It was called A Whole Other World - Subculture Craft and ran May 24th thru Sept 26th.

The exhibit featured works by artists who were inspired by Doctor Who, Star Wars, Steampunk and Superheros.  I was contacted by the exhibit's curator in late 2014 as she had shown interest in my The Tenth pixel quilt; which she had seen on social media.

My Sister joined me on the roadtrip and wanted so badly to point out to every Museum-Goer she ran into that "This is my Sister's piece".  Luckily I convinced her that it would be better to just hang out in the gallery and creepily listen to what people had to say.

Even though I have lots of photos and the wall placard, it still doesn't seem real; especially considering that this quilt is now folded and sitting inconspicuously in a pile of other quilts in my home.
