San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles

San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles

The mission of the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is to promote the art, craft and history of quilts and textiles. Textile art transcends cultural, ethnic, age and gender boundaries and encompasses traditional as well as contemporary forms. The museum provides a serious venue for all artists working with textiles, filling a void left by larger institutions with a narrower view of what defines artistic expression. Its exhibits and programs promote the appreciation of quilts and textiles as art and provide an understanding of their role in the lives of their makers, in cultural traditions, and as historical documents.
