CREATED IN CELEBRATION OF SARASOTA'S CENTENNIAL

Strangers are unread books; they're judged by the first words but, if you read them long enough, you'll find that their stories are quite compelling.

Artist Statement

This community quilt was inspired by the variety of cultures that make up current Sarasota as well as Sarasota of the past. Individual quilters depicted in each block what inspires them about Sarasota and how its diversity has enriched their lives here. The colors blue and yellow ochre were a uniting theme, symbolizing sky, water, and sand.
