WEST GEORGIA QUILT

Artist:
AMY SMOOT
UWG Art Major

Quilts allow people to come together in many different ways. During the Civil War it is believed that quilts helped aid the escape of runaway slaves in the Underground Railroad.  The AIDS quilt brought an entire nation together to support the people who had fallen victim to the disease.

My design will represent the West Georgia area and surrounding community.  It will depict places and things that make our community special. Each quilt square will show snippets of places like the Cultural Arts Center, the University of West Georgia, Adamson Square and Lake Carroll.
