Sequim quilt exhibit ‘Pieces Together’ climate change effects on parks

Sequim quilt exhibit ‘Pieces Together’ climate change effects on parks.
SEQUIM — The Sequim Civic Center will feature the National Park Fiber Arts exhibit “Piecing Together a Changing Planet” beginning today.
The display — featuring 26 art quilts — has been touring the nation since December 2014 and will be shown at the civic center at 152 W. Cedar St. through Friday, June 30.
The quilts were created by various members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates to highlight a few of the ways that America’s 401 national parks are impacted by climate change, water pollution and other human-caused phenomena.
“The artists’ goal is to help open people’s eyes to the beauty of nature that surrounds them, and share their concern for its loss,” said Maya Schonenburger, the exhibit curator.
Sequim is the only stop in the Pacific Northwest for the national exhibit and the last stop of the tour, according to a news release.
The exhibit is sponsored by the city Arts Advisory Commission in partnership with Olympic National Park.
