Arts Daily / 14th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition – “Sankofa”

14th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition – “Sankofa”

This annual juried exhibition features works in fiber created by African American artists from throughout the US. The theme of the 14th installment of the exhibit was directly inspired by the Twi word “Sankofa,” which translates to “go back and get it.” Sankofa also refers to the Asante Adinka symbol that appears as a stylized heart shape or as a mythical bird with a backwards head carrying an egg. The word and symbols represent the concept of remembering the past to inform the future. Curated by award-winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington, this unique opportunity offers African American fiber artists a showcase to exhibit their original and innovative designs. On view April 28-June 29, 8 a.m.-7 p.m. daily.
