Creators of "Freedom Quilts" to be recognized at reception

April 16, 2002

The African American Cultural Center will host a potluck reception Sunday, April 14 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. to honor three artists who participated in the Tennessee Arts Commission's Freedom Quilt Project.

Ludie Amos, Howard Brown and Janice Page each created a quilt that illustrates the history of a famous black church in the Clarksville area. Featured churches are Mount Olive Baptist, St. Peter African Methodist Episcopal and Tabernacle Baptist Church.

The Freedom Quilt Project was funded by a Tennessee Arts Commission grant to the Goldsmith Press and Rare Type Collection in 2000-01. Grant funding was matched by Austin Peay, the Center of Excellence in the Creative Arts and the APSU department of art.

Cindy Marsh, director of the art department, the Goldsmith Press and the Freedom Quilt Project, invites faculty, staff and students to bring a dish and celebrate with her, Dr. Jaqui Wade, Dr. Jill Eichhorn and Deborah Fetch.
