Newburgh Freedom Quilt Project
Newburgh Freedom Quilt Project: A welcoming visual celebration of the Harriet Tubman sculpture arriving in Newburgh. Local creative leaders have been inspired by the oral history of quilt codes that supported efforts of the Underground Railroad in freeing enslaved people. Community members, elected leaders, Library supporters and our thriving arts community will contribute to this new creative initiative at the Newburgh Free Library on the plaza. Volunteers are needed to paint quilt squares from Oct. 5 through Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. This project is about the people of Newburgh - so your quilt square can have your special touch, a quote, a signature, a sketch, and so on.
