The tourism committee of the Cozad Chamber of Commerce is excited to move forward with plans to bring a Barn Quilt Trail to Dawson County. Barn Quilts are considered one of the fastest growing grass- roots arts movements in the country. A Barn Quilt is painted on MDO plywood or signboard to represent a quilt design. The blocks often tell a story unique to the maker or location. This outdoor art form is touted as a vehicle for agri-tourism, a way for art to be accessible to all, and a way to beautify the community.
