What's Happening This Week

Last and Free (!) Doll Workshop of Dolls Gone Wild With Curators Dale Guy Madison and Cheryl Williams

Using images of famous Black celebrities, the doll making workshop this Saturday will show you how to make paper dolls using cut-outs and actual fabric to dress dolls with an animal print theme. Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Angela Bassett, Wesley Snipes, and Laurence Fishburne are just some of the paper dolls waiting to be immortalized in animal print – like this paper doll of Michelle Obama made by artist Nawili Gray! This workshop is FREE – there will be no materials charge for the workshop.

This is the last doll making workshop that will take place as part of this year’s Doll Show, Dolls Gone Wild!  If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the doll show yet, this would be a great time to check out some of the works of the amazing doll artists and get inspired too. The exhibition is open Tuesday-Saturday from 12 Noon to 5pm through February 8.
