Look, I know Baltimore Fishbowl just endorsed the incredible exhibit of quilts by artist Stephen Towns at the Baltimore Museum of Art, but we’re here to tell you there’s even more incredible quilt work you need to see.

City Hall is hosting an exhibition of quilts and fiber work by women artists that “challenge the notion of moving fabric art beyond beauty, comfort, protection and warmth.” Some of the themes, according to a Facebook event page for tonight’s opening, are “family ancestry, social justice actions, historic events and figures, collaborations and personal journeys.”

Mayor Catherine Pugh will be on hand tonight to deliver remarks, and the artists and exhibit curator, Dr. Joan M. E. Gaither, will discuss the individual works. Additionally, the Dunbar Jazz Band will perform.

6-7:30 p.m., City Hall, 100 N. Holliday St., free (photo ID required).
