What does war look like through the eyes of a child soldier? How does one become a killer? How does one stop? It is rare to fin a first-person account from someone who endured this hell and survived. Ishmael Beah, now 26 years old, tells a powerfully gripping story.
The event will be held in the galleries of the Museum. Several expert quilters including Cody Mazuran, Carol Morgan, Carol Bittner, and Beth Ann Neville will set up demonstration tables and informally interact with museum guests as they share information they have gleaned from years of creating beautiful quilts. Museum guests can ask questions, learn new techniques, and receive advice from quilters who have spent much of their life practicing and studying the art of quilting.
Author Carol Nielson and quilt researcher Suzanne Hudson will also be sharing information about two important historical quilts. Carol Nielson has researched and written about the LDS 14th Ward Album Quilt created around 1857. She will share insights about how she came to know and understand her grandmother after conducting in-depth research on a quilt she made.
7:15pm Historical presentations in the museum theater.
This event is NOT ticketed.
Light refreshments will be served.

Roger, Paul, David and Randy are singin’ siblings from Spanish Fork! Their men's quartet has a “down-home” style and fun brotherly banter, with musical harmony that ranges from barbershop, patriotic and pop to country, folk and sacred. These guys may be local, but their abundant talent is definitely big time.
Come find out why the stunning and seasoned four-part blend and easy family humor of The Tucketts always draws a crowd. And don’t miss their signature comic highlight – a jumbled retelling of the story “Cinderfella and her Sisty Uglers!”
This interactive exhibit explores fundamental human relationships through the medium of quilts and other displays. It encourages men and women of all ages and circumstances to consider the relationships that bind us together as a human family. Traditional gallery displays come together with multimedia and hands-on activities for a fun and engaging experience for the entire family.
Enjoy an interactive station where children can create their own magnetic quilt blocks or practice embroidery by stitching together the museum walls. Families can share the quilting experience by helping to create quilts for humanitarian efforts or recording their own quilt memories in a video booth.

On Friday, March 11, the Utah Premiere Brass, conducted by Dr. Kirt Saville, will perform a concert of inspirational and majestic music entitled "Stained Glass And Stone" as a tribute to the Provo Tabernacle.
When the Utah Premiere Brass began over a decade ago, UPB had the privilege of performing several times a year in the Provo Tabernacle. UPB's famous Essentially British I through VI series were all played at the beautiful tabernacle; as well as six years of holiday concerts and other programs entitled Encore, Concerto for Trumpet, Classical Treasures and Guilty Pleasures, and much more.
The fiery destruction of the Tabernacle on December 17, 2010 was devastating to UPB, as the bulk of their musical history was born there. "Everyone in our community has felt the tremendous sense of loss represented by the tragic fire and destruction of the Provo Tabernacle," said Dr. Kirt Saville. "How many wonderful music programs and performances have poured forth upon our community through the beauty and sanctity of this wonderful edifice."
The Utah Premiere Brass dedicates this concert, "Stained Stone and Glass, Provo Tabernacle, In Memoriam" to the innumerable musical and artistic events which were enhanced and embraced by this sacred edifice. Read more here
