Conscience of the Human Spirit: Quilts Honoring Nelson Mandela

Conscience of the Human Spirit: Quilts Honoring Nelson Mandela

Betty Leacraft (LTA ‘11, ACG ‘16, ‘14, ‘09, WOO ‘99) is one of the artists featured in Conscience of the Human Spirit: Quilts Honoring Nelson Mandela, an exhibition on view at the Delta Arts Center in Winston-Salem, NC through February 24. 

The exhibition was developed by the Michigan State University Museum and the Women of Color Quilters Network in association with quilt artists in South Africa and was showcased in July 2014 at the International Quilt Conference Africa in Johannesburg. The 51 quilts made by U.S. quilt artists are now featured in this traveling exhibition. These diverse and powerful pieces reflect the ways in which this remarkable man touched lives, changed a nation, and literally served as the conscience of the human spirit for individuals around the world.
