Exhibitions NYC | Geometric Dreams: Infinite Variety at the Park Avenue Armory

Art and science at its best: the beauty of geometry is celebrated in Infinite Variety, the spectacular exhibition of quilts presented by the American Folk Art Museum. The breathtaking exhibition, unfortunately closing today, presented 650 red and white American quilts, all on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose, in the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall.
The magic of geometric patterns from polygons, tiling, tessellations, mandalas, in the most elaborated phantasmagorical presentation, is beautifully installed as floating in the quite dramatic space of the Armory.
The entry to this event was even free of charge and photography was allowed.

With many thanks to the American Folk Art Museum.
