Inbetween Spaces - NC exhibit

The Stone Center for Black Culture and History presents Inbetween Spaces: Textured Imaginings of African-American Lives, a collection of 21 quilts by Heather Williams, assistant professor of history at UNC at Chapel Hill and member of African American Quilt Circle. Williams uses fabrics and poignant images to chronicle the lives of black folks. She causes us to think! The exhibit is open from Sept 21 - Dec 6.

If you get to see the show, do leave a comment here and tell us about the "Romare's Garden" quilt, inspired by Romare Bearden. Or the George Washington Carve inspired quilt... Or the "History Quilt," (photo). Enjoy! And, thanks to a NC friend for sharing this news.
