Far North Quilt Trail - Fairbanks
The Far North Quilt Trail, Alaska's first barn quilt trail, was founded in Fairbanks in 2019.
An artist led endeavor of creative place making by visual artist Somer Hahm, the Far North Quilt Trail is designed to ignite the eyes and minds of Fairbanks and the surrounding area with vibrant geometric paintings of quilt block designs. A city wide scavenger hunt for public art, the Far North Quilt Trail welcomes community involvement and provides a platform for anyone interested in participating in this new American Folk Art movement.
A project that thrives on community involvement, all Alaskans are encouraged to create a barn quilt, install it on your home/barn/shed/mailbox and register the painting on the Far North Quilt Trail. Registration is free and open to the public.
