African-American Quilt Tradition with Cookie Washington

09nov(nov 9)10:00 am21mar(mar 21)5:00 pmThe 13th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition: Black Gold

Event Details

Organized and presented by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, this unique opportunity offers African American fiber artists an annual showcase to exhibit their original and innovative designs. This selection of pieces are on loan through the SC State Museum.

 

This year’s theme is directly inspired by the song Black Gold by Esperanza Spalding from her 2012 album Radio Music Society. The challenge for this year’s exhibit was for artists to review the lyrics of Spalding’s song, as well as the official music video, then create a fiber art piece that will inspire future generations.
