Returning crusader knights brought with them treasure chests not filled with jewels, but cinnamon, ginger, and peppercorns. The story of spices, some 5000 years old, is also the history of trade and commerce. The American continent would not have been discovered as early had it not been for the European desire to break the Arab traders' spice monopoly.

"Along the Spice Route" features 35 wall quilts depicting artistic interpretations of spices that refine modern cuisine. The exhibit offers an opportunity to discover the spices´ countries of origin, the importance of ancient trade routes, and the lasting connections between the world´s cultural heritages. Curated by Ann Reardon and Paula Golden.
