Wandering Spirit: African Wax Prints
February 2-March 30Free
The Tulsa community is invited to join the Oklahoma Center for the Humanities at “Wandering Spirit: African Wax Prints” exhibition that documents the history and development of the handmade designs and patterns on textiles that originated in Indonesia and were copied and industrialized by Europeans and exported to Africa. The exhibition, curated by Dr. Gifty Benson and organized by ExhibitsUSA/Mid-America Arts Alliance of Kansas City, Missouri, traces the developmental pathway of the African wax print and tells how these fabrics reflect the stories, cultures and personalities of the people who wear them.
This exhibit will run Feb. 2 – March 30, 2024 in the south gallery at 101 E. Archer. Admission is free. The gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon until 5 p.m.
