spacer graphic

Folktales from Around the World was created by 14 children in the 3rd and 4th grades of the Thomas Gardner School in Allston. It was created in collaboration with local artist Clara Wainwright and the DeCordova Museum. It is on permanent display at the Honan-Allston Branch. Each child selected a folktale from their country of origin to illustrate the body of the quilt. In addition there are self-portrait panels of each child around the edge of the quilt.
