New on view: 'ANGRY YOUNG MEN' QUILT
New on view in Heritage Hall:
Angry Young Men Quilt
Marion Coleman, 2006, Castro Valley, California
This quilt was first shown during the MSU Museum's special exhibit, "Quilts and Human Rights."
From the artist: Angry Young Men is a fiber collage quilt that examines urban violence, the criminal justice system in the United States, and community ambivalence toward the loss of a generation of young African American men. There appears to be a lack of public will to address their basic human right to have an enriched life, health, education and prosperity.
The MSU Museum's Great Lakes Quilt Center has evolved from the sustained and significant quilt-related activities and resources at the Michigan State University Museum and the museum's long-standing interest in and commitment to preserving and presenting traditional arts history.
