About the Exhibition
Featuring art and objects from the collections of Preservation Long Island, the Huntington Historical Society, and the Whaling Museum & Education Center, Blanket Statements explores the rise of the regional textile industry and its interwoven connections between people, materials, technology, and labor—both enslaved and free—across an ocean and generations.
Visit the Blanket Statements page to learn more about this exhibition and the companion exhibition, From Farm to Fabric: Early Woven Textiles of Long Island, at the Huntington Historical Society.
The exhibition is sponsored in part by North Shore Quilting & Fabric Art
