Public Talk with Dr. Alice Burmeister

Join us with Winthrop University professor and art historian Dr. Alice Burmeister for an in-depth conversation about West African factory-printed textiles. In addition to learning about the way women use these textiles to communicate, Dr. Burmeister’s talk will specifically reference both the exhibition on view at the Mint, African-Print Fashion Now! , as well as Yinka Shonibare: The American Library , on view at the Van Every/Smith Galleries at Davidson College. Co-hosted by Davidson College and the Sphere Series.
