37th Annual Black Doll Show: Jubilee, Celebrations in Color
By Staff
Published January 12, 2018

Now-Feb. 17

For its 37th Annual Black Doll Show the William Grant Still Arts Center will be focusing on gatherings, coming together and events to remember through doll artistry and displays. Showcasing Black life as a celebration of events that are monumental and small, ordinary, and extraordinary, events that depict Black life in all its facets, as well as to explore “cultural image” as depicted through the beauty and diversity of dolls. “Jubilee, Celebrations in Color”, further seeks to reshape the dialogue on Black life and identity as portrayed in mainstream American media and in dominant narratives. The exhibition creates a counter narrative through highlighting how the Black community sees itself as portrayed in the traditional rites of passage and cultural events. The exhibition includes hand painted murals by Patrick Johnson and AISEBOURNE. Learn and practice doll making at three Saturday doll making workshops on December 16, January 6, and February 3 from 2-4pm. The exhibition will also offer a curatorial walk through with curator Stephanie Moore. The William Grant Still Arts Center is located at 2520 S. West View Street, Los Angeles 90016.
