Lake Apopka’s Untold Stories

The Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilt is featured as part of Art and History Museums Maitland “Untold Stories” exhibit. The Blue Quilt draws your eye as soon as you enter the Maitland Historical Museum in its own alcove in the entryway. Linda Lee, principal quilt maker, and Mary Ann Robinson, who has family members memorialized in the quilt, had a chance to see the quilt beautifully displayed with family and friends.

On the visit they were very lucky to have the personal attention of the museums curator for a tour of the rest of the amazing exhibit, located in the Art Center, and a tour of the Historical Museum where the quilt is displayed.  The Quilt has been extremely well received by the public, and we are thrilled that the exhibit will bring more attention to the former farmworker community, and farmworkers plight broadly.
