Pic of the Week: Purple Bison Edition

A mesmerizing quilt by Cheryl Rounds was included in the “Inspired by Endangered Species: Animals and Plants in Fabric Perspectives,” exhibition in the Library earlier this week. Photo by Shawn Miller.

It’s entirely possible you’ve never seen a purple, blue, orange and gold bison before, and we wanted to correct that before you hit the weekend. The Library’s Science, Technology and Business Division hosted the art quilt display, “Inspired by Endangered Species: Animals and Plants in Fabric Perspectives,” earlier this week, based on the book by Donna Marcinkowski DeSoto. This gorgeous quilt by Cheryl Rounds of Vienna, Va., was one of our favorites.

    I never saw a Purple Cow,
    I never hope to see one;
    But I can tell you, anyhow,
    I’d rather see than be one.
