the san jose museum of quilts and textiles

Situated on a sunny street in downtown San Jose is the Museum of Quilts and Textiles. Quirky awesome was my instinct. The museum’s collections deliver on both counts.

A costumed Marie Antoinette in unconventional fabric.

A kimono fashioned from fused glass photo decals and copper wire. The photos are of the artist’s family members.

Larger than life-size textile sculptures.

There are also chromogenic prints from Robin Lesser and Adrienne Pao.

Well worth the visit and admission price, which is $8.
