The quilt exhibition is a result of the Nelson Mandela Museum and the Michigan State University Museum’s long-standing partnership that dates back to the times of Nelson Mandela himself. In tribute to Nelson Mandela and in support and advocacy for the principles to which he was devoted, artists around the world would make quilt items with different designs and meanings. The exhibition specifically features quilts that were made in 2013 and 2014 and were curated by the Michigan State University Museum and Women of Color Quilters Network in association with quilt artists across South Africa. The exhibition was produced in 2014 published in Michigan State University’s catalogue book and launched at the Nelson Mandela Museum on 18 July 2020.
