Lawrence quilt artist Marla Jackson is pictured before an 1890s quilt from an unknown artist at the African American Quilt Museum and Textile Academy, 2001 Haskell Ave. Jackson recently received a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission to renovate the museum space. Next to Jackson on the bench is a framed portrait of Maria Rodgers Martin, who was born a slave in 1831. Quilts made by Martin will be rotated through the museum.
