TAUNY invites the community to a reception celebrating the completion of the “Towns of St. Lawrence County Barn Quilt” mural and acknowledging the many people who contributed to this exciting project. The reception will take place at The TAUNY Center in Canton, NY on Saturday, September 21st from 1:00-3:00 pm. Visitors will have a chance to see the mural, which was created in conjunction with the county-wide Barn Quilt Tourism Project, and meet some of the people who spent the summer working on the mural at The TAUNY Center. A new online map of barn quilts in the county created by the St. Lawrence County Arts Council will also be on display at the event.


Organizer and barn quilter Ruth McWilliams, South Colton, led a team of volunteers in creating the barn quilt mural over the summer in TAUNY’s Barn Quilt Studio. The process began with historians and other town representatives throughout the county working with Ruth McWilliams and Pat Dominie of the St. Lawrence County Historical Association to select traditional quilt patterns representing the rich and diverse heritage and identity of each of the county's 32 towns. These 32 barn quilt squares make up a colorful 4’x8’ mural that will be featured in an exhibition at The TAUNY Center in 2020, and will eventually go on permanent display in the county. 


Special thanks to Triple A Building Center and Coakley Home and Hardware for donating materials to this project. 


Earlier this year, a group of project partners—including TAUNY, the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, the St. Lawrence County Arts Council, the Hammond Barn Quilt Trail Committee, and the Town of Colton Tourism & Beautification Committee—received a New York State Council on the Arts Regional Economic Development (REDC) grant to work on a major project celebrating and promoting barn quilt activity in St. Lawrence County. Over 2019, the project features a range of exciting elements including: the recent series of summer “Barn Quilt Parties” around the county; the “Towns of St. Lawrence County Barn Quilt” mural project; a pilot tour of an area barn quilt trail; support for several contemporary, folk, and traditional artists to produce new works inspired by the barn quilt concept; and an online map for people in St. Lawrence County to post their own barn quilts and the stories that go with them.
