In architecture, a capital is the topmost element of a column. And, at the Ruins of Windsor in Mississippi’s Claiborne County, capitals sit almost 44′ off the ground to top the twenty-three Corinthian columns. But at The Welty Biennial, a capital sits on the floor, at eye level, in a rich color, with ornate details, as something of true beauty. Here we see the Capital being unpacked to move into the place where it will live for the next three months. In the background you see one of the quilts from the 27th Annual Mississippi Cultural Crossroads Quilt Contest.
