2014 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Betty will use textiles to engage master instructors of West African dance/drum traditions in the craft hand-dyeing. These African inspired textiles will be created for their studio home at the Community Education Center. Two hand-dyeing workshops will result in wall banners that will serve as visual inspiration to dance/drum children, teens and adult students. In July 2014, Betty will travel to South Africa and upon return, conduct a presentation to this community about her trip from an artist perspective.
