The museum was the third quilt museum in the US when it opened in 1990. The mission of the museum "is to enrich the lives of people of all ages, backgrounds, and cultures through the celebration of, education about, and preservation of the art and history of American quilts and quiltmaking, past and present."

From their release:
The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is organizing an exhibit which highlights quilts created by African American artists. The show will cover a wide range of styles, from the traditional to the more contemporary, and will showcase the varied works in design, style, inspiration, and message. Submissions must include one full and one detail view of your entry in either 35 mm slides or 300 dpi digital electronic jpeg files on CD. In addition, please include an artist statement of about 100 words, as well as a description of materials used. There are no size requirements for the quilts, but please do note the dimensions of the piece when submitting your entry.

Slides or digital entries must be received at the Museum by November 16th, 2007. For more information or if you have questions, please contact Megan Aikman, RMQM Curator, at 303.277.0377 or email
