In 2022 the International Quilt Museum (IQM) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln celebrates a quarter century of studying, preserving, and exhibiting the Ardis and Robert James Collection. The Jameses' donation of their unparalleled 1000-piece quilt collection in 1997 established the IQM and formed the solid base from which the museum has steadily grown. Today, the IQM collection includes more than 6000 quilts from five different centuries and over 60 countries, and expansion that has been encouraged by the James family, who continue to support the museum's efforts to represent global quiltmaking. This companion publication to the exhibition series An Evolving Vision: The James Collection, 1997-2022 highlights important pieces from various segments of the collection: Classics - stunning antique American quilts; From the Studio - early and innovative art pieces: and New Horizons - quilt traditions from around the world. It also includes a comprehensive catalog of all 1000+ quilts in the James Collection.
