Art meets history as we explore the correlation of hip hop and quilting. From the secret language via symbols and lettering, to the movement of minstrel shows and the talent that emerged, quilting and hip hop share a foundation that eventually gave rise to hip hop culture. Discover the connection in the new exhibit, Hidden Messages.
