Crystal Quilt 3 min version(1987)
The Crystal Quilt performance culminated an artwork bringing awareness to older women. Beginning with a three month Humphrey Institute of Public Policy seminar for 35 older women from throughout the state, the project built on that leadership to design and produce a massive performance with 430 performers over the age of sixty. Staged in the Philip Johnson-designed IDS Center’s Crystal Court, the performance took place on Mothers Day and was live broadcast on PBS television. Over 3,000 people witnessed older women talking about their lives as their gathering created an eighty-two foot square tableau in the shape of a quilt.
