The New York Transit Museum exhibition Grand Central Centennial Quilts, which runs March 15-July 6 at the Museum’s Gallery Annex in Grand Central Terminal, depicts the beloved landmark’s enduring grandeur not in marble, but in handmade textiles from across the country.

Manhattan-based store The City Quilter and American Patchwork & Quilting magazine hosted a national contest using fabrics created for and inspired by the Terminal’s 100th birthday celebrations in 2013.  Three winners and 27 finalists from that competition will have their work displayed in the Gallery.

The quilts reinterpret Grand Central Terminal with a wide array of artistic visions. They incorporate the Terminal’s iconic architecture, with adornments such as chandeliers, clocks, the famed celestial ceiling, and acorns and oak leaves woven creatively into the designs. Quilters looked to the past, present and future for inspiration, often drawing on personal encounters and family stories about the iconic transportation hub.
