"Cincinnati Edition" interview with Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi & Kathy Wade
Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi and Kathy Wade speak to "Cincinnati Edition" host Michael Monks on Monday, June 28, 2021 about the Story Quilts project and the upcoming exhibition We Are the Story: A Visual Response to Racism. Listen to the full interview HERE.
Few artforms can lay claim to the power that quilting possesses. Seemingly mundane objects, quilts are both deeply personal -- with us in our most vulnerable moments as we sleep -- and woven tightly into America's history.
-- Listen Here --
That duality makes them a perfect vehicle for examining America's painful history with race, and a new exhibition coming to Cincinnati in July called Story Quilts aims to do just that. Organizers hope the exhibition and related art, music and dance events can spur conversations that can lead to meaningful and lasting change.
