Black at Work: Engaging Youth through Textiles and Artmaking at the International Quilt Museum

Online Event
2pm ET (GMT/UTC -5)


International Quilt Museum guest curators Sadé Ayorinde and Chadric Devin will join Carolyn Ducey, IQM Ardis B. James Curator of Collections, to discuss a community project between the museum and the Arts & Humanities focus program in Lincoln, Nebraska. Using their exhibition "Black at Work: The Color Black in Quilts from the Collection," Sadé and Chadric engaged high school students in conversations about the color black and its function as a visual and conceptual element in art. In response to the show, students were encouraged to consider and use black in work of their own.
