Gee's Bend Quilt Trail Upgrade and Expansion
Souls Grown Deep and The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development are leading an effort to upgrade and expand signage along the Gee’s Bend Quilt Trail. The project will begin by replacing existing signs erected to commemorate the 10 Gee’s Bend quilts that appeared on U.S. postage stamps in 2006. From there, signs will be erected to commemorate quilts placed by Souls Grown Deep Foundation in the permanent collections of major museums, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the High Museum of Art.
Quilt Trail sign design by Pentagram, the world's largest independently-owned design studio.
