"Honey's Mango Bop" Quilt
On June 23rd, 2009, my "Honey's Mango Bop" quilt was one of the many featured in the "TEXTURAL RHYTHMS: CONSTRUCTING THE JAZZ TRADITION -- CONTEMPORARY AFRICAN AMERICAN QUILTS" exhibition opening at the American Folk Art Museum in New York City.
The venue was packed with art, quilt, and jazz lovers all around.
Great works from artists included Carolyn Crump and Carolyn L. Mazloomi, who organized the exhibition.
I couldn't be there so my daughter went to represent for me and even signed a book on my behalf.
The exhibit will be there till October 11th. To learn more about it and museum, Click Here
