Star Trek Said Quilts Are Queer Art

Alongside her second year MFA exhibition, Flannel Futures, Nora Renick Rinehart has created a comic/essay entitled, Star Trek Said Quilts are Queer Art: Intentionality and Imagination in the Craft Continuum. Join Renick Rinehart for a dramatic reading of the comic followed by a conversation with fellow artist and Star Trek enthusiast Emilie Mulcahey in which they ponder how craft and queerness overlap with The Final Frontier.


Event was free and open to the public thanks to the support of The Anonymous Fund, but registration was required for Zoom webinar link.
