Past Event: WWII Home Front Exhibit Extended

We are excited that Richmond Museum of History has extended the "Quilts of the Home Front “ exhibit through June 29th.  Museum director Melinda McCrary says “Higher than usual visitor volume continues, and we are delighted by this interest.“  Featured are the thirty 2014 challenge quilts, many period items from the Museum’s permanent collection, and three large story quilts about the Japanese American internment on loan to RMH. You still have time to see this great exhibit, or visit again!
