The United Church of Christ in Keene will commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday with an exhibit of the "Sacred Ally Quilts," an installation of 10 quilts honoring the final words of George Floyd before a Minneapolis police officer killed him in May 2020. The quilts — which are four feet wide and three to six feet tall — are all hung from quilt racks, alongside statements from their artists, who come from nine different New Hampshire churches. The quilts have been on display throughout the Granite State, Vermont and New York since they were completed in the summer of 2020. On Monday, the exhibit will be open to the public in first-floor chapel of the United Church of Christ in Keene at 23 Central Square from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Masks and social distancing will be required.
