African American Fiber Arts Symposium

Anita Knox shared with me the following: "The Kansas African American Museum will present a symposium by many well established African American fiber artists from across the country June 8 – 10, 2007. Lectures and workshops highlighting unique and innovative non-traditional and traditional techniques in quilt making, wearable art, surface design of fabrics and doll making will be offered during this three-day event.

"The symposium will close with an artist’s market and wearable art fashion show. Presenters include: Liani Foster, Washington, D.C.; Aundra McCoy, Memphis, TN; Sammie Nicely, Atlanta; Rosemary Reed, Washington, D.C., and Patricia (Trish) Williams, Chicago, IL. The Kansas African American Museum is located at 601 N Water Street, Wichita, KS 67203. Registration for the symposium will be available after March 10, 2007."
