13th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition–Black Gold

The African American Fiber Art Exhibition–Black Gold, curated by nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington, features works in fiber created by African American artists from throughout the United States. The theme of the 13th installment of the exhibit was directly inspired by the song “Black Gold” by Esperanza Spalding. More than 50 artists accepted the challenge to review the lyrics of Spalding’s song, as well as the official music video, then create a fiber work, such as an art quilt, doll, wearable art piece, etc., that will inspire the next generation. The exhibition is on view May 1 – June 21 at the North Charleston City Hall.
