Meet Juniper

The resident troublemaker and most essential employee at the Eiteljorg Museum. You can expect to see Juniper show you the galleries, play games and so much more.

We asked you to pick a name for our new horse that will be in the R.B Annis Family Western Experience. It was a close call, but you decided that the horse will be named *drumroll please* Juniper! Thank you all for voting, and stay tuned for more adventures around the museum with Juniper!

Hay all! It’s Juniper, your resident troublemaker and most essential employee at the Eiteljorg Museum here to take YOU ‘round these parts while all my co-workers are at home. I certainly hope I ditched that stall smell when I left the barn...I’m a city horse now! Every Thursday I’ll be here to show you the galleries, play games, and more! You also might see me on Twitter more often @EiteljorgMuseum, if I can ever figure out how to tweet with these hooves... #HorsinAround

Haaayy, it’s Juniper again, bringing you another adventure from the Eiteljorg while my human friends are at home. This puzzle in the Western Art Galleries has me stumped! I think it’s supposed to be ``Village Square`` by Ernest Martin Hennings, but right now it’s just a bunch of pieces.</p> <p>Have you been doing any puzzles lately? If you’re looking for some super cool puzzles to do, hoof it on over to shop.eiteljorg.org. And if you finish one, make sure to tag us so I can see it! Now… where do all these pieces go? #HorsinAround⠀

It's Juniper here for your weekly dose of foal fun! Now THIS is a nice Zoom background. I herd that you can find some pretty backgrounds here on the Eiteljorg At Home page on www.eiteljorg.org, so you can wow your friends and look like you're among the art like me! #HorsinAround⠀

Feature Fridays

Every Friday we will feature a variety of things including beautiful quilts shared with us from the public, recreated pieces of art using household items and our insider blogs that help you get to know or amazing staff.

Attention quilters and #EJQuilts fans please consider helping our healthcare workers

Local hospitals report a dire shortage of face masks to protect nurses and doctors from the virus. They seek donations of face masks, and can accept homemade face masks. See this link: https://bit.ly/3dxYH6h. Do you have sewing skills and spare fabric from quilt projects? Would you consider sewing homemade face masks and donating them to your local hospitals? Sewing pattern is at this link: https://bit.ly/3dxx6CI.

Please do not bring donated masks to the Eiteljorg; the museum is not a collection point. Instead, please check your local hospital’s website to find out where to leave donations of masks. We would love to share photos of you sewing face masks. Please share your photos with #EJQuiltersHelpHealthcareHeroes.
