In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Queen Anne Mansion Museum in Eureka Springs is exhibiting a collection of quilted works of art created by Quilters Against Breast Cancer and Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.
The special exhibit to raise awareness about breast cancer is titled, “A Stitch in Time…Making Memories at The Queen Anne Mansion.”
Quilters Against Breast Cancer transform the most beautiful pieces of donated wedding gowns to create quilted art. Selected quilts will be displayed in The Queen Anne Mansion Museum’s state-of-the-art gallery.
Proceeds from the sale of these beautiful quilts go to the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation. Making Memories is a nonprofit organization dedicated to granting wishes for metastatic breast cancer patients while continuing to support, educate and increase resource awareness.
The quilts will be exhibited throughout the month of October. Tours of the home cover over 12,000 sq. ft. on four levels and include the state-of-the-art gallery space, which hosts rotating cultural exhibits, such as the quilts. Following a four year, multimillion dollar restoration, the 1891Queen Anne Mansion House Museum features impeccably restored original woodwork, leaded and stained glass and is home to one of the most impressive private collections of 19th century decorative art on public display.
The Mansion is located at 115 W. Van Buren. For more information, visit thequeenannemansion.com, or call 1.800.MANSION.
