I wanted to share.
The Museum at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido has a wonderful exhibit featuring 6 of my Ethiopian images in the main hall.
The History and the Hair Story: 400 Years Without a Comb is a journey through the history of the African American hair industry and its role in our present culture. From its origins in the seat of civilization to the epicenter of the civil rights movement, the comb’s untold story takes the spotlight in this exhibition by way of 400 years’ worth of artifacts, photography, historical accounts, propaganda, and much more.. Curated by Starla Lewis, Professor of Black History at San Diego Mesa College and frequent guest curator and lecturer at the Women’s Museum of California.
I also have a permanent exhibit hanging at the University of San Diego’s Institute of Peace and Justice. John Rowe and I have given images to this wonderful college.
The first one – montages of images from all of my travels – are hanging in the Dean’s office. More images will be hung along the main hallways.
