An Interview with Char Downs - Quilt City USA Mural Artist

"During the April 2022 AQS QuiltWeek event in Paducah, KY, AccuQuilt Cutting Expert, Pam Heller, was able to visit the Flood Wall and speak with the lead project artist, Char Downs." Char is responsible for painting the quilt mural on the Flood Wall, with hopes to have the entire wall covered in painted quilt murals.


From AccuQuilt:


"In this video, our host, Pam, interviews Char Downs about: Char’s life after moving to Paducah, the Flood Wall’s history, and the Flood Wall’s murals project. Char Downs has been an artist her entire life and painted the quilt mural, Corona 2: Solar Eclipse by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry, on one of the panels of the Flood Wall. She owns her own studio in Paducah and continues sharing her love for the arts with guests through exhibitions, pop up events, and installations at the Yeiser Arts Center."
