Different Quilts...Monday, July 30, 2007
Mozell Benson, a 2001 NEA National Heritage Fellow, is a quilter from Waverly, Alabama. The Architecture School (I think that since this particular project is separate from the Rural Studio program) at Auburn has a website dedicated to the studio they built for her, to live in and to function as a workshop so she can teach children to quilt.
There's a movie about the construction of the studio here, and an article in the current Metropolitan magazine about it here (just look at the interior!). Beautiful.
BTW, there's an article in Sunday's New York Times about the ongoing Arnett/Gee's Bend litigation (thanks for letting me know, Elizabeth!) that can be found here...it seems to be more gentle on the Arnetts than most of the articles that have come out lately.
