Kerry G. Hill: The Barn Quilts of Green County, WI


  • TnT's Coffee & Cafe 729 N High Point Rd Madison, WI, 53717 United States

Barn quilts are large painted squares -- usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on barns or other buildings. They can be found in many, mostly rural, areas, in Wisconsin, but Green County has the biggest collection, more than 130 barn quilts. These quilts -- symbols of comfort, family, heritage and community -- provide warm artistic accents to the rural countryside.

The photos in this exhibit represent a sample of the hundreds of images captured during a three-day shoot in June 2014.
