Bisa Butler: Live and Direct

Bisa Butler: Live and DirectSunday, April 19
5:00 – 6:30 PM
Enjoy a rare opportunity to hear Bisa Butler discuss her work, influences and process on site at her first solo museum exhibition. Surrounded by approximately 20 of her works, Butler will discuss how narrative and identity inform her quilts. The vibrant portraits of African American life and the tales the quilts tell are largely based on photographs from which Butler takes inspiration. Learn how she creates a story around each image and, in her choice of fabrics, uses texture, color and the cultural origin of the cloth as part of a personal iconography that makes statements about society and identity.

Tickets: Members $20; non-members $25. Includes reception.
