LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The International Quilt Study Center and Museum is hosting a public opening of its newly expanded galleries.

The event on Friday will include free admission from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the grand openings of two new exhibitions: “Ambiguity and Enigma: Recent Quilts by Michael James” and “Getting to Know You,” a 29-piece exhibition curators say represents the breadth of the center’s 4,500-piece collection.

The $7 million 13,200-square-foot expansion was funded by the Robert and Ardis James Foundation and includes a new digital gallery and storage space for the museum’s international quilts and patchwork collection.

The event will also feature presentations by quilt artists Sherri Lynn Wood and Leah Sorensen-Hayes.
