2022 Special Exhibit

The African American Quilt Guild of Oakland Celebrates 20 Years: 2000 - 2020: Telling our Stories Through Quilts


The African American Quilt Guild of Oakland was founded in 2000 with a mission to:

  • Preserve and continue the tradition of quilting,
  • Promote fellowship among interested persons in all aspects of quilting,
  • Contribute to the knowledge and appreciation of fine quilting and quilts, and
  • Sponsor and support quilting activities through regular meetings and special events with the community.


This Special Exhibition is a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of AAQGO as an Oakland-based Black community institution. For the 20th Anniversary, the challenge was to create a 20 x 20 inch quilt representing either:

            • What the organization means to the member, or
            • An historic event during the 2000 - 2020 (i.e. science, sports, education, literature, politics, your family, our community , or movements, etc.).
