This is the view from the new medical library. The library was really great as well. I had a bad case of library envy. I did not expect to encounter any needlearts on the trip, but this amazing set of quilted panels was hung in the medical science building.
Of course, being a librarian, I had to ask for information so I could tell you about it properly.
Here is what the plaque says:
"A quilt of mountain colors created by Sally Rowe, Cottageville, West Virginia, for The Health Science Center at West Virginia University to celebrate Research, Education, Health Care and Service to West Virginia, 2007"
It was commissioned for the space - a large two story atrium and the panels must be at least 8 feet high. And the pieces that make up the quilt are small so it was an labour of love for sure. There is lots of lovely natural light which highlights the beauty of the quilt. The door to the library is opposite the piece, so you see it every time you leave the library. Lucky people.
