史普林维尔博物馆的拼布展
地方性遗产

您的家族中有任何古老的拼布吗?拼布常一代传一代,它是一个艺术作品,也是一个用来保暖的物品。拼布时常出现在博物馆内,就像会出现在某人的家中一样。

美国历史随处可见,负责照顾一家人的女性,也常感受到创造艺术的迫切需求。她们会使用她们手边现有的材料(主要都是一些老旧的衣服及家用碎布)来制作拼布。自1847年,拓荒者定居在塩湖谷(Salt Lake Valley)以来,拼布就成为犹他州的一部分历史及文化。自此以后,拼布艺术就以母传女、朋友传邻居的类型沿续了下来。拼布需要花费数百个小时、缝上数千针才能完成。

1800年代制成的拼布,到了现在已极具价值,有些人收集拼布就像收藏画作或雕像一般。犹他州史普林维尔的史普林维尔博物馆,每年六月都会会举行展览,炫耀当地拼布家的拼布天份。许多的拼布都会通过颜色及符号,来述说犹他州的日常生活故事。

Are there any old quilts in your family? Quilts, which are often passed down from generation to generation, can be an art form as much as something that keeps you warm. A quilt could just as easily be in a museum as it would be in someone's home.

Throughout American history, women who took care of their families also have felt the urge to create art. They used materials they had at hand -- mainly old clothes and rags from the household -- to create quilts. Quilting has been a part of Utah history and culture since pioneers settled in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The art of quilting has been passed down from mother to daughter and friend to neighbor since that time. Quilts can take hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to make.

Quilts made in the 1800s are very valuable today, and some people collect quilts just like paintings or sculpture. The Springville Museum in Springville, Utah, has an exhibit every year in June to show off the quilting talents of local quilters. Many quilts tell a story of daily life in Utah through colors and symbols.
