Harlem Designer’s hats on exhibit at Mad Museum

NEW YORK, NY (HARLEM)-NOVEMBER 4, 2010-Evetta Petty of harlemsheaven.com will have her hats on exhibit as part of an awesome installation called The Global Africa Project at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.

 

This is an unprecedented exhibition exploring the broad spectrum of contemporary African art, design, and craft worldwide, The Global Africa Project premieres at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) on November 17, 2010. It features the work of over 100 artists working in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean, The Global Africa Project surveys the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and its influence on artists around the world. Through ceramics, basketry, textiles, jewelry, furniture, and fashion, as well as selective examples of architecture, photography, painting, and sculpture, the exhibition actively challenges conventional notions of a singular African aesthetic or identity, and reflects the integration of African art and design without making the usual distinctions between “professional” and “artisan.”[1]

 

The exhibit will run from November 17, 2010 until May 15, 2011.
