Adriene Cruz's "Quilt for Obama" will be shown in the nation's capitol from Sunday, Jan. 11 and continuing through Jan. 31. The work is included in a special celebratory exhibit at The Historical Society of Washington, DC, put on by The Historical Society, the Women of Color Quilters Network and The Group for Cultural Documentation. The exhibit includes 60 art and interpretive quilts made to celebrate the inauguration and welcome the Obama family to Washington. Cruz's quilt, "Warrior of Light/Shield for Obama," is a quilted talisman offering prayers and blessings of protection and peace for Obama and his family.
