An evening of spoken word, jazz and breathtaking works of art.
The members of the African American Quilt Circle have regularly shared their magnificent, memorable quilted art work with the Durham community for 20 years at Hayti Heritage Center shows that feature their vibrant, soulful visual images in cloth. This year a new dimension has been added to their quilted art: SOUND! created by musicians and spoken word artists. Their poetry and jazz, to be presented at the show's opening on September 21st, was the inspiration and challenge for AAQC's fiber artists to hear, interpret and then create unique, vibrant visual pieces reflecting what they ‘heard.' These works of art will be enriched with a wide variety of unique quilted art pieces throughout the gallery.
Light refreshments will be served, and food trucks will be on hand.
