Field Trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art: The Art of Elizabeth Talford Scott

February 06, 2024



Twenty innovative mixed-media fiber works demonstrate Elizabeth Talford Scott’s belief in artmaking’s ability to offer people an opportunity to break free of social limitations, evolve new ways of communicating, and nurture dreams. Her works innovate the practice of quilting by incorporating unconventional objects such as stones, buttons, and sequins in heavily layered surfaces. Among the highlights of this exhibition is Grandfather’s Cabin/Noah’s Ark (1993–96), an exquisite story quilt that recalls memories of the cabin Talford Scott’s grandfather built on Blackstock Plantation in South Carolina.  Co-Curator and MICA Curator-in-Residence Emeritus George Ciscle will join us to talk about the exhibition and the larger project that spans 9 sites in Baltimore City!




Seating is limited, so please only sign up if you can commit to going. The Shuttle will depart from Mt. Royal Station at 6pm and be back by 9pm.
