Big Bend Quilt Trail

A community art project

A Community Art Project

The Big Bend Quilt Trail is a public art project initiated and orchestrated by the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum in 2019 to install large wooden quilt block murals throughout Gadsden and Leon counties. Designed and created by various local businesses, museums, and individuals, each mural will be its own unique installation. Gadsden Arts extends a heartfelt thank you to all of our Big Bend Quilt Trail partners for their enthusiastic collaboration that made the project possible!

This site provides an online interactive map of the quilt block murals for visitors to scout and travel to the numerous mural sites. View the map below and click on the locations to view a quick look. Click on the "Info & Directions" button to learn more about the quilt block and how to get there.
