Blending Poetry and Cloth is a traveling showing of art quilts created by members of SAQA, an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt and the artists who create them. . Blending Poetry and Cloth entries required that the artist reference a piece of poetry, a song or a quotation in creating their composition. Poetry and art have been inextricably linked for as long as they have both been in existence – one illuminating the other and requiring the use of multiple senses.   The juried show consists of 35 art quilts which are traveling Oregon for the next two years.  Cost: museum admission; Hours: Mon-Sat 10am-5pm.  2nd floor exhibit gallery, Mill Building Willamette Heritage Center,  1313 Mill St SE  503-585-7012
