Reception at the DeLand African-American Museum

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, the exhibit of the Lake Apopka Quilts opened at the DeLand African-American Art Museum.   

They will continue on display through June 29th with a selection of photographs from The Last Harvest collection (  


The Museum is located at
325 S Clara Ave, DeLand, FL 32720
(386) 736-4004
 Wednesday – Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM 



Former Lake Apopka farmworkers Linda Lee, Betty DeBose, and Mary Ann Robinson spoke to a very receptive and interested audience about their experiences and history with farms around Lake Apopka.  And, Linda Lee described the history and making of the quilts.   

The Museum has a very nice permanent collection as well and is definitely worth a visit to DeLand!
