Quiltmakers of Gee's Bend, The is a 60 minute DVD from Alabama Public Television, available through the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Store. For more than 150 years, the women of Gee's Bend have made quilts reflecting their history and daily lives. Over generations they worked in isolation, continuing to inhabit the remote plantation land their parents once slaved. Today, art critics worldwide compare them to the great creative enclaves of the Italian Renaissance.
Quilts of Gee's Bend, The is a 28 minute DVD from Tinwood Media, available through the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Store. Set in the quiltmakers' homes and yards, and told through the women's voices, this music-filled documentary takes viewers inside the art and fascinating living history of a uniquely American community art form.
Quilt on the Wall: A Portrait of Jan Myers. Since colonial times, the most spectacular of all blankets has been the handmade quilt. Contemporary textile artist Jan Myers weds this utilitarian respect for quiltmaking, in this 28 minute video from The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, with her own desire for self-expression. Antique quilts and historical photographs provide the backdrop as we watch Myers make a patchwork quilt: from planning it, dyeing and cutting the fabric to sewing and quilting the geometric squares of her modern design.
