Experience the quilt in a whole new way: as a form of modern art, and as the canvas for an intricate story. The biannual Quilt National takes the familiar form and puts it in a fascinating new light. This year the show moves to Peabody Opera House (1400 Market Street; 314-499-7600 or www.peabodyoperahouse.com), and includes more than 55 award-winning quilts from around the world. As always, proceeds from the juried show benefit Safe Connections — which means your ticket directly supports services for survivors of relationship violence and sexual abuse. The Quilt National is on display Thursday through Saturday (November 19 to 21), Monday to Wednesday (November 23 to 25), and Friday and Saturday (November 27 and 28). Admission is $10.
