The Tennessee State Museum hosts a wide range of FREE, fascinating events and educational programs throughout the year. Advance reservations are not required, unless indicated on the listing. For seated events, seats are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tiffany Momon, a Research Professor at the MTSU Center for Historic Preservation, will give a presentation on the artist behind the creation of a Double Wedding Ring quilt in the Museum’s current quilt exhibition, Between the Layers: Art and Story in Tennessee Quilts. The quilt was created by Harriet Meneese Falls, a formerly enslaved African American woman living in Robertson County, Tennessee. She worked as a nanny for Maxine Elliott, for whom she later created the quilt. This presentation will delve deeper into Harriet’s life, revealing the story between the layers of her work of art.
The Tennessee State Museum’s Lunch & Learn series is a chance for participants to eat a brown bag lunch while learning about Tennessee history. Presentations begin at noon and last about 30 minutes. All programs are FREE to the public. For those unable to attend the Lunch and Learn, the event will be Livestreamed on the Tennessee State Museum’s Facebook Page.
