More Information

Collector, scholar, and maker Carolyn Mazloomi sought work by artists with powerful voices as she built her collection. Quilts, especially those with a narrative element, have been a particularly vital tool that Black makers use to illustrate Black history. These artists portray a variety of Black experiences, some celebrating the achievements of artists, poets, and adventurers, and others protesting the pervasive and harmful racism directed towards people of color in American society. A selection of twenty-four contemporary quilts are presented in this vibrant and inspiring exhibition. Quilts provided from the collection of Carolyn L. Mazloomi.
