Fiber artists worldwide, including local artist Larry McKenney, competed to be in this show. The challenge was to create a piece of art celebrating the life and music of pop icon Prince. Tributes to “Little Red Corvette,” “Raspberry Beret,” “Lonesome Dove” and other Prince hits will be found among the quilts. 

To complement the quilts, there will be a display of custom-made guitar furniture from Cincinnati artist Rick Metz, who invented the Guitar Chair to celebrate his favorite musical instrument.
