GREENWOOD – On Friday, Feb. 8, three new exhibits will open at The Museum with a reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
In observance of Black History Month, “The Ties That Bind – Service for a Lifetime,” celebrates the contributions of four sororities and five fraternities (“The Divine Nine”) that have played a role in African American history and culture locally, nationally and worldwide.
A second exhibit, “I’m Not Every Woman, I’m a Phenomenal Woman,” is the 12th installment of an annual, juried traveling exhibition that offers African American fiber artists a showcase to exhibit their original and innovative designs around a changing theme each year. This year’s theme pays tribute to an extraordinary African American woman, past or present, real or fictional, a public figure or an unsung heroine.
“The Art of Quilting” showcases the exquisite creations of Greenwood residents whose stitches lovingly created unique works of art.
The Fiber Arts exhibit will be on display through March 30, and “The Ties That Bind” and “Art of Quilting” exhibits will be on display through May 18. The Museum is located at 106 Main St., next door to the Greenwood Community Theatre, and admission is free. For more information, contact the Museum at (864) 229-7093.
