Breakout: Quilt Visions 2016 | 10/15/2016 – 1/8/2017 Tues – Sat 10am – 4pm
Luscious hand painted silk, vibrant fabrics and elegant designs with thread. These textile elements are all on view in Breakout: Quilt Visions 2016, the 14th international juried biennial exhibition produced by Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles. The three esteemed jurors chose 41 stunning works of art from 434 entries for this internationally recognized biennial exhibition. The selected artists exemplify the most creative innovations in quilt art today. While the term “quilt” brings to mind a bed covering, these works resemble paintings designed for the wall. Several awards for excellence in design and craftsmanship will be announced at the opening reception. A full color catalog will be available.

The History of Liberty Station
Liberty Station was formerly known as NTC (Naval Training Center). It was first opened as a Naval facility in 1923 and it was stopped being used as an active military base in 1997 when it was designated for closure under the terms of the Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990. In May of 2000, the Navy turned the property over to the City of San Diego. Liberty Station is a collaboration between the City of San Diego Redevelopment Agency and The Corky McMillin Companies. Part of Liberty Station is designated as an Office District – this area covers 22 total acres and allows for a maximum of 380,000 square feet of office space. Over the years the buildings have been painted different colors. The original color was unpainted stucco which was a warm beige. During World War II the buildings were all painted dark green to make them less visible from the air especially at night. Eventually, they were painted a yellow/gold color and now as the buildings are being restored – they are being painted to reflect their original color a warm coral/beige.
