Yvonne Walker Keshick stopped by the MSU Museum on Friday, October 23, to see the new exhibition on Michiganders who received the very prestigious National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Yvonne was the most recent Michigander to receive a fellowship. She was recently honored, along with 2002 National Heritage Fellow Nadim Dlaikan, as a featured speaker at a 50th Anniversary Celebration for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Photograph by Kim Worthington, Yvonne’s daughter and a good quillworker herself.
