Sunday August 16, 2009 features Paula Nadelstern on CBS Sunday morning. Kaleidoscopes have come a long way from those cardboard tubes you may remember looking into as a child. Serena Altschul takes us to a Kaleidoscope maker's studio, and to the American Folk Art Museum in New York City, where Kaleidoscope quilts surround the kaleidoscopes that inspired them.

KALEIDOSCOPE QUILTS: The Art of Paula Nadelstern
On view April 21-September 12, 2009
at the American Folk Art Museum
This is the American Folk Art Museum's first one person exhibition highlighting the work of a contemporary quilt artist. Paula Nadelstern has achieved international recognition for her innovative and complex designs inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. Her artistic vision encompasses science, history, and tradition, expressed in crystalline patterns composed of slivers of jewel-like fabrics.
