Sadly short in run, Infinite Variety is one of the most stunning installations of American folk art to hang in New York City.

About the exhibition –

The American Folk Art Museum has dramatically transformed the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall with the installation of 650 red and white American quilts, all of which are on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. It is the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in the city.

The quilts will remain on display through Wednesday this week (March 30, 2011) having only just opened on Friday.

Make sure to catch the exhibition if you can.
