  • Academic Centers

The Foster and Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery, located in the bottom floor of the Fred Rogers Center at Saint Vincent College, is a nonprofit cultural organization that collects, preserves, interprets and disseminates the history of weaving and folk traditions in the Northeastern region of the United States.

The McCarl Coverlet Gallery also fosters and carries out research, exhibits, publications, educational events and interpretive projects.

The prized collection of antique American coverlets owned by Foster and Muriel McCarl was part of a $1 million gift to Saint Vincent College. The Beaver Falls couple conveyed its collection of more than 300 coverlets to the College along with funds for the care and preservation of one of the premier coverlet collections in the country.

The Foster & Muriel McCarl Coverlet Gallery is open Wednesday-Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  For more information about visiting the Gallery and to contact the curator, please visit and follow us on social media for the latest updates
