Join us in welcoming international artist Aboubakar Fofana, from Mali, for a special pop-up gallery event at Textile Center featuring the indigo-dyed textiles for which he is known and celebrated around the world.

We are thrilled and honored to have Fofana join us to share a few words about his work. The show and sale are free and open to all, so come out, bring your friends, fall in love with indigo, and support the work of an amazing artisan. Wearable textiles and pillow covers will be available for purchase to benefit his projects.
