The Richardson Quilt Gallery Opens with Ribbon Cutting


The Kentucky Museum welcomed its newest exhibition, The Richardson Quilt Gallery, on Friday, February 24 with a Chamber Ribbon Cutting and reception for about 75 quilt enthusiasts, friends of the Kentucky Museum, and family of Elizabeth Richardson–the woman responsible for acquiring the significant collection of quilts and textiles samples her daughter June McGuyer donated to the Kentucky Museum.

The program opened with remarks from the Chamber, followed by Kentucky Museum Director Timothy Mullin and ended with June McGuyer talking about her mother’s lifelong interest and affection for quilts. McGuyer donated the quilts in honor of her mother for preservation purposes and in hopes that others will be able to study and enjoy them as well.
