      EVENT DETAILS
      “Quilt Health” with Marsha MacDowell

      Name an illness, medical condition, or disease and you will find quiltmaking associated with it. From Alzheimer’s to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Lou Gehrig's Disease to Crigler-Najjar Syndrome, and for nearly every form of cancer, millions of quilts have been made in support of personal well-being, health education, patient advocacy, memorialization of victims, and fundraising. Dr. MacDowell’s presentation will explore the long historical connection between textiles and health and its continued and ever growing importance in contemporary society, examine the evidence-based literature that demonstrates the profound impact quilts (making and receiving) have on healing and well-being, and introduce audience members to resources they can use to participate in and or to study the important intersection of art and health. This event is free and open to the public.

      Cost: Free -
