Assistant Curator of Exhibitions,
International Quilt Study Center & Museum
We are pleased to have the assistant Curator of Exhibitions, from The International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. The museum is home to the world’s largest collection of publicly held quilts dating from the 1600’s to today. The quilts represent more than 55 countries. Rotating exhibitions display gems from the collection and traveling exhibits. The museum’s mission is to build a global collection and audience that celebrate the cultural and artistic significance of quilts.
After completing a career in human resources and business management, Jonathan Gregory earned an MA in textile history/quilt studies from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln where he is also pursuing a doctorate with an emphasis in quilt studies.
In addition to our lecture topic about engineer Earnest Haight’s quilting career, Jonathan’s research topics include Kansas quiltmaker Rose Kretsinger and quiltmaking for the families of American military personnel killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. He also has researched and contributed content to the first volume of International Quilt Study Center & Museum’s forthcoming catalog funded by the Getty Foundation. In addition, Mr. Gregory assists with the preparation and installation of the Center’s exhibitions.
