Join us as fiber artist Gillian Kennedy Wright shares her collaborative work of art, Journey to Sunday Dinner. Through a collaborative partnership with Anthony Burks, Sr., this installation focuses on powerful family women (“Big Mamas”) who keep their families together in faith and life at the Sunday dinner table. Gillian’s interactive talk will be grounded in a historical and cultural discuss of Afrocentricity. This will set the tone for the discussion on the process of making each work, her life’s journey, and her call for a cohesive arts community.
Admission is free for Cultural Council members, and $10 for nonmembers. Advance registration and online payment (for nonmembers) is required
Space is limited. Facial coverings and social distancing will be required for all attendees.
