Connecting Kuumba Through Community Exhibit at FACES
November 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 31, 2020
The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) invites you to join them in a celebration of black fiber artists from around the Eastern Shore at the “Connecting Kuumba Through Community: Black Fiber Artists Showcase.” This exhibit will showcase a diverse range of talents including quilting, crochet, fashion and accessory design, collage, and more, and feature creations made by local and regional artists, as well as heirloom pieces. The artwork will be on display at FACES in Denton from November 5, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
“Kuumba” means creativity in Swahili and is the sixth principle of Kwanzaa, an African American celebration of family, community, and culture. The purpose of kuumba is to use our creativity to enrich and beautify our communities. Kwanzaa was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, an Eastern Shore native, in 1966 as part of the black liberation movements happening in the United States during that time. Kwanzaa occurs from December 26th to January 1st.
Come out and support black fiber artists and learn more about Kwanzaa!
FACES hours: Thursday, 12-4:00pm, Friday, 12-4:00pm, Saturday, 12-4:00pm
