11th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition 

When: Mon., March 6 2017
Price: Free Admission
African American fiber artists from across the nation are invited to participate in the 11th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition: Move on Up and Reach the Higher Ground, a component of the 2017 North Charleston Arts Fest. The theme for this year’s exhibition is inspired by the aspirational music of the 1970’s that sought to unify and lift the spirit of our nation, specifically songs such as Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground and Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield. As we find ourselves, once again, in a time of great division and unrest, the challenge for this special exhibit is for artists to create a fiber work, such as an art quilt, doll, wearable art piece, etc., that explores the ideas of creating a better world, journeying toward self-awareness, and ascending to a position of loving acceptance of all citizens. Organized and presented by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, and curated by Torreah “Cookie” Washington, this unique opportunity offers African American fiber artists a showcase to exhibit their original and innovative designs. The application can be accessed at NorthCharlestonCulturalArtsDepartment.SlideRoom.com. Deadline for submission of application: Monday, March 6, 2017
