Spotted at a Brooklyn Museum Exhibit about Tepees of the Plains

The gorgeous contemporary quilt was made by Claire Anne Packard (Yankton Dakota--Sicangu Lakota) and won top honors at the 1994 Northern Plains Tribal Arts Show. The quilt is really striking---I'm afraid my snapshot doesn't do the colors justice.
I'm always happy when I find a great quilt in an unexpected place. Today I'd expected to see only tepees and other Native American artifacts and I was lucky enough to see this wonderful quilt!
