Uncovered: The Ken Burns Collection



Uncovered: The Ken Burns Collection
October 9, 2021 – January 30, 2022

Yes, that Ken Burns! America’s renowned filmmaker and documentarian reveals a more personal side of his storytelling talents in Uncovered: The Ken Burns Collection, the newest exhibition opening Saturday, October 9, 2021, at the Upcountry History Museum, a Smithsonian affiliate, in its only stop in the Southeast and at only the second museum in the United States to host this incredible once-in-a-lifetime display.

Featuring 26 hand-sewn historic quilts dating from 1850-1940 within Burns’ personal collection, this exhibition presents a poignant picture of America. With an intimacy of distinctive precision, design, color, shape, and appliqué, each quilt embodies the beauty – and mystery – of this treasured art form. From an 1890 Triple Irish Chain quilt that was a wedding gift from mother to son to an inspiring 1918 Red Cross quilt sewn to raise money during World War I to the rare 1933 National Recovery Administration quilt with the initials FDR, these textiles represent remarkable examples of early Americana while reflecting Burns’ love of history, America and her people, as well as his personal affection for the stories quilts convey.
