And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations
February 6 – May 27, 2018
“And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations” explores 400 years of significant events that have transformed social justice for African Americans on 67 story quilts hand-crafted by artists in the Women of Color Quilter’s Network.
Curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and organized by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the Cincinnati Museum Center, this national traveling exhibition showcases the diversity of techniques and textiles used in quilting, and its enduring appeal as forms of folk art and narrative storytelling.
A visual exploration of history from the 17th to 21st centuries, the exhibition reveals the triumph of the human spirit, inspiring visitors to reflect on 400 years of African American history.
Commemorating Black History Month for 2018, ”And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations” was open Feb. 6 through May 27, 2018 at the California Museum as the last scheduled venue on a five-year national tour.
