One Donor’s Story: Dr. William E. Barrick

MMofA Board Member Bill Barrick (pictured below) has donated $1,000 towards our $15,000 goal for our quilt restoration.

“Quilts have always been a part of my family,” he said. “My grandmother, mother, aunt, twin-sister and niece have always been quilters. Over the years, I have treasured quilts that have been handed down to me by my family.”

Dr. Barrick and his wife have generously led the way with the project’s first significant gift, for which we are grateful!

Did you know?

This quilt (pictured above) has never been on view because its condition is too fragile. That’s why we are raising money to have this quilt lovingly conserved and restored. The estimated cost for its full restoration is $15,000.

MMofA is reaching out to our art and history lovers for help in conserving this commemorative quilt with ribbons, embroidery, and images relating to Mobile and its civic and public organizations.

Please consider making a donation for the restoration of this Mobile treasure.
