ART Exhibit | Freedom Rising: I Am the Story by L’Merchie Frazier

From the Minneapolis Institute of Art:

L’Merchie Frazier is a fiber artist, quilter, historian, innovator, poet, and holographer. According to Frazier, “This exhibition continues my work and conversations, concerned with equity and justice, called The Quilted Chronicles and its Target Series. It examines the lives and legacies of African-descended people, including children and their communities across centuries of memory, places, and activism.”

This exhibition is part of a larger initiative, We Are The Story, organized by the Textile Center and the Women of Color Quilters Network (WCQN). It was curated by WCQN founder Carolyn Mazloomi, who conceived of the project when Minneapolis became an epicenter for nationwide protests following the police killing of George Floyd.
