The Fabric of Emancipation: The Lens of American History through Contemporary Fiber Arts
(2018 Seasonal Exhibit: July 15–October 28)
Rokeby Museum,
Exhibit opens Sunday July 15th

The Fabric of Emancipation features the work of eight of the country’s preeminent fiber, textile and needle artists expressing what it means to be of African descent in the Americas. On loan from Harlem Needle Arts, curator Michelle Bishop offers the exhibit as a call to raise awareness that, while fractures exist within the identity of Africans in the Americas, the culture as a whole stands on centuries of significant contributions to history.
