      Stitching Community: African Canadian Quilts from Southern Ontario

      The ROM celebrates Black History Month

      This exhibition showcases quilts made from 1848 to 1976 to explore the role of African Canadian women in strengthening community ties. The exhibit focuses on the African Canadian community in North Buxton, Ontario - a community comprised of many freed slaves who settled in Canada.

      The exhibition is comprised of artifacts loaned from the Buxton Museum and items from the Ontario Black History Society (OBHS), including quilts, photographs, tools of the trade and a variety of black cloth dolls.

      A video component entitled Talking About Quilts, based on interviews with quilt makers and quilt researchers, is also included in the exhibition.

      Due to the G20 Summit, there may be disruptions, schedule changes or closures for some events. Please call ahead, or check the events official website for confirmation, before heading out.

      Cost: Included with general Museum admission: Adults: $22; Students and Seniors with ID: $19; Children (4 to 14 years) $15; Children 3 and under are free.
