Issaquah Highlands Council, artEAST and 4Culture are excited to bring to our community an art exhibit and programming from the Pacific Northwest African-American Quilters (PNWAAQ). These artists bring not only an important art form but also perspectives of African-American history. PNWAAQ members will display their original art quilts on the theme of “I Am”. Each quilter’s unique imagery and expression will complement the others in this themed exhibit. Enjoy several activities culminating in a great party / reception with music, food and libations.
