Westport Quilt Square Scavenger Hunt
July 15 - July 29
Westport Museum for History and Culture, 25 Avery Place
Westport, 06880 United States
Riddle me this! Can you find all 18 of the Museum’s town history “quilt” squares? Hidden around town at partner locations are 12”x12” beautifully designed artworks inspired by town monuments, buildings and industries mimicking the quilt style.To find them all, solve clues for the location and answer a simple question about the boards when you find them for a chance to win prizes.
A celebration to choose the winners of the hunt will be held July 30th. Visitors will see all the “quilt” squares together and enjoy some light refreshment before winners are selected. Prizes include tickets to two Halloween events taking place in October: four tickets to the Museum’s 13th Annual Illuminating the past Lantern Tour and four tickets to our all-new Escape Room featuring a fictionalized story based on Connecticut’s Witch Panic. Winners will be randomly selected from completed packets that are returned to the Museum by July 29th at 5 pm.
The scavenger hunt is being held in connection to a quilt display being shown in Westport Museum’s Program gallery from June 30th-December 30th. We have partnered with CAMP gallery and MOCA Westport, also showing textiles and quilt inspired exhibits this summer. Many notable sites in Westport have taken a panel and cleverly placed them somewhere on their property. It’s your job to find them!
Pick up your kit at the museum or by using our registration link here. To access your kit, use the link in your ticket receipt. This link will become active on July 15th when the scavenger hunt begins. Kits are $5 or free for Family members of the museum.
