Built in 1892 and now on the national register of historic places, the Monte Cristo Hotel in downtown Everett, WA, is home to the Arts Council of Snohomish County. The Hotel was a exciting new venue for CQA, as this exhibit was mounted to usher in the holiday season in November, 2009. The sophisticated Italian Renaissance styling of the Hotel's lobby and balcony display areas provided a perfect backdrop for the more than 30 art quilts displayed.
