showcases works in fiber that explore imagery of people of the African Diaspora. Curated by Michelle Bishop of Harlem Needle Arts, the exhibition features pieces by nine artists who use a variety of media including embroidery, soft sculpture, quilt, and mixed media. With elements of swag, spirituality, icons, music, and social justice, the works illustrate self-awareness, identify, motivation, and varying backgrounds and traditions that govern the artists’ lives.
This exhibition is presented with the NYC Parks Ebony Society. The Society has helped organize the annual Black History Month exhibition in the Arsenal Gallery since 1991. Harlem Needle Arts also worked with an HHT member house, Morris-Jumel Mansion in Washington Heights, on an art installation.
