Nebraska Stories

The Quilts of Ken Burns

Clip: Season 9 Episode 13 | 10m 45s

Filmmaker Ken Burns has collected quilts since the 1970s. Unlike his films, Burns has not publicly shared his collection until recently when he allowed the International Quilt Study Center and Museum to host exhibit a small selection of them. We talk with the filmmaker to learn why he chose to share his quilts and why he chose Nebraska.
