2016 Art and Change Grant – Vashti DuBois

Vashti will produce a catalogue and documentary about The Colored Girls Museum, a space she created in her home that honors the stories and experiences of women and girls of color. The rooms in her house have been converted into installations where artists from the community tell different stories about the ordinary and extraordinary women of color in their lives. The museum is a staging ground for community engagement, education, celebration, and the advancement of civic and cultural pride. Vashti wants to preserve the museum and it’s impact through the catalogue and documentary.
