Walk into an exhibit of Amy Meissner’s work like her recent “Inheritance”project, and you will immediately recognize familiar textile objects — quilts, doilies, handmade pieces of fabric used for generations to warm and decorate our homes.

Jayson Smart, a senior program officer, has worked at Rasmuson Foundation since 2010.
