Town Hall Meeting
Have you seen our County’s latest arts attraction? Designed for barns, not beds, “barn quilts” are 8 foot-square painted wooden quilt panels, hung on the exterior walls of barns. Come and meet the founders of this grand community arts endeavor, and join in a discussion as they share their continued artistic vision for the project.
Learn where the barn quilt movement began and how local support for the arts helped launch this larger than life, open-air-gallery of Folk art. Hear from current barn quilt owners, quilters, art enthusiasts, and community organizations as we discuss barn selection, painting techniques, installation, and the variety of volunteer opportunities available. Barn owners, future barn quilt enthusiasts, history buffs and art supporters will enjoy this informational and friendly atmosphere. Learn how to request a “quilt” for your barn and join the fun!
Date: Saturday, May 12, 10:30 – noon

Hello Barn Quilt Fans,
Welcome to the Barn Quilts of Carver County! We are seeking 10 Carver County barns to include in this unique community project, an open-air-gallery of Folk Art. Quilting in Carver County is taken to the next level! The American Barn Quilt movement started in Adams County, Ohio but you can enjoy Barn Quilts in Carver County. This project will bring the entire community together through quilting, art, and family legacy. Barn quilt designs will be created under the direction of a professional local artist with the help of volunteers from throughout Carver County.
