The WWII Home Front Quilts Project is a collaboration of San Francisco Bay Area quilt enthusiasts, arts organizations, museums and historical associations, The Rosie the Riveter Trust, and National Park Service staff and volunteers. The Project sponsored a challenge for quilts depicting themes from the American WWII Home Front, with entries due in January 2014. The WWII Home Front theme was chosen to promote interest in the new NPS Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, located in Richmond, California.
Thirty quilts were chosen by a jury, and are exhibited at the Richmond Museum of History April 5 through June 6, 2014. They are also exhibited on this website in our online gallery. Other Bay Area exhibit venues are pending.
The Project is pleased to announce a second Call for Quilts, with an entry deadline of July 20, 2014.
