STYLE IN THE CITY : TOUR OF AFRICAN PRINT FASHION NOW AT BROOKS MUSEUM OF ART
Last Wednesday, I had the honor of hosting and guiding guests of the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art on an intimate tour of African Print Fashion Now Exhibit. Throughout the length of the exhibit, the museum has a plethora of community events and guest led tours to help curate and engage the community in the African Print Fashion Now! exhibit. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have been involved in since my longtime involvement with the Brooks.
I anticipated a handful of people who follow me on social media that didn't make the opening night to come out and experience the public tour. Surprisingly, it wasn't. I was welcomed with open arms and artistic curiosity by a diverse group of strangers and now friends and crushes, more on that. More than the allotted number of 30 guests came to hear my unique perspective of the art and fashion of this unique exhibit that has a major focus on art and fashion of Africa. There were youth visiting from California, longtime supporters of the museum, my close friends, and the 2009 Pulitzer Prize winner and co-chief art critic of the New York Times Holland Cotter (art crush, OH MY) all in the museum. WHAT A WONDERFUL NIGHT!
