Tonight at Spelman College, Brides of Anansi: Fiber and Contemporary Art artists Saya Woolfalk and Xenobia Bailey will host a discussion with Nettrice Gaskins, Ph.D., STEAM director, Boston Arts Academy on how contemporary women view nature and natural systems for inspiration.
The conversation will be held in conjunction with Brides of Anasi, an exhibit exploring how fiber became a distinctive voice of women in the African Diaspora. The exhibit is on display until December 6.
The conversation will also touch on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) and biomimicry – a bridge between biology and design. For more information, click here.
