Today is the anniversary of the commencement of Operation Overlord, D-day.
I though it appropriate to show some of the Quilts of the Netherlands that were created using the inspiration of Freedom. The liberation of the Netherlands was seperate from D-day but the point is the same.
I love seeing history represented in art like this.
I have lots more pictures to show of the Quilts of Netherlands show, there were some absolutly amazing quilts, and now that I have them downloaded I'll get them organized and show some more!
You notice I take pictures of the cards with quilts when I can. It helps me remember the quilt better, along with the artists information and anything else they've included.
ADDED- Different war but I thought it was really interesting article in my local paper about cave etchings in the tunnels under Vimy Ridge from WWI. Art during war in the most literal way.
