Title

Orange and Maroon Quilt

Description

One of the items on display at the Alumni Center Art Exhibit. On 4/16/08, as part of the Day of Remembrance observance, the Holtzman Alumni Center Museum displayed examples of art, crafts, quilts, and other memorabilia contributed since April 16, 2007. This is one of over 60,000 items that will eventually go to Special Collections at Newman Library.


A quilt accompanied by a letter that said:

"My name is Jackie Wake. When the shootings happened in April my heart fell to my gut. This is what I do (make afgans) and the Lord laid in on my heart to do this for VT. Please lay it out and stand back so you can read all the names. We decided to take a trip to bring it down. We hope you can find a use for it.
