On Fridays from June 25 through July 16, BAMPFA Education staff offer two types of guided tours of the acclaimed Rosie Lee Tompkins exhibition: family-friendly discussions that explore patterns and discover hidden stories in the quilts, and adult tours that address Tompkins' life and the extraordinary visual qualities of her art.
