An extraordinary Refugee quilt and textile display will be on display at the Four Rivers Cultural Center beginning Saturday June 29 in conjunction with the annual Tradition Keepers event. This Is My Home Now: Narrative Textiles From Idaho Newcomers will be on display until July 24.

This collection focuses on quilted and stitched artworks that depict a narrative or story element in their design. The pieces embody the collective voice of some of Idaho’s newest residents as they translate stories of journeys and lives in transition onto textiles. These examples of living traditions demonstrate how the visual impact of place affects values related to worldview, occupation, community, and opportunity.
