Betty Colburn's Work in Three Exhibits

Biblical Origins of Racism by Betty Colburn

Betty Colburn's Biblical Origins of Racism is included in the exhibit, "The Unspoken Truth About Color: A Dialogue in Art Quilts About Racism." The exhibit opened April 29, 2011 at the ARC Gallery, Chicago, Illinois,  and will continue through May 22, 2011. "The Unspoken Truth" examines one of the most complex and seldom discussed issues in our culture today: racism. In this exhibit, members of Fiber Artist for Hope have created pieces based on their personal experiences. This exhibit will travel with the Mancuso quilt shows this year.

Obama Drafted for NBA by Betty Colburn

Betty's quilt Obama Drafted for NBA is included in Carolyn Mazloomi's exhibition and book "Journey of Hope: Quilts Inspired by President Barack Obama". The exhibit opened on May 5, 2011 at the Du Sable Museum of African American History, Chicago, Illinois. The exhibit was previously shown in Ohio and will travel to Atlanta and Boston.

Unlimited Sky Power by Betty Colburn

Unlimited Sky Power, also by Betty, is currently included in the Quilts Inc. exhibit "The Sky is the Limit".
