Bloomin'/Blumen: Flowers in Pennsylvania German Textiles and Folk Art

During the Penn Dry Goods Market, be sure to visit the special exhibits in the ground floor gallery. Opening April 8, 2017, is Bloomin'/Blumen: Flowers in Pennsylvani German Textiles and Folk Art.

Whether you're coming to the Penn Dry Goods Market or visiting any time in the spring and summer of 2017, make sure to see the special exhibit we'll be featuring in the ground floor gallery, Bloomin'/Blumen. Pennsylvania Germans loved flowers, and they bloom everywhere - on samplers, on Berlin wool embroidery, on quilts, fraktur and more! The walls will be lined with gorgeous interpretations of many varieties of flowers in needlework, watercolor and ceramic. And sometimes, these flowers and gardens even carried symbolic meaning - look for more information in the exhibit.
