World Art encourages critical reflection at the intersections of theory, method and practice. It provides a forum for redefining the concept of art for scholars, students and practitioners, for rethinking artistic and interpretive categories and for addressing cultural translation of art practices, canons and discourses. It promotes innovative and comparative approaches for studying human creativity, past and present.
A project of the Michigan State University Museum, the Quilt Index is a searchable repository of digital images, audiovisual resources and documents representing over 50,000 quilts and associated quiltmakers and quilt-related activities, along with ephemera and interpretive materials.
The Quilt Index may be found on the AH/C Art History Resources page, located under Digital Collections.
