2006 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

  • Neighborhood: West Philadelphia
  • Change Partner: University City Arts League
  • Discipline: Crafts and Textiles

Stefani will create a series reflecting the lives of 25 African American women and their relationships with African American men, focusing on relationships with their fathers. Through taped interviews with these women, Stefani will create imagery for a series of ceramic platters that will graphically depict their stories as well as her own. Embellishing the platters with imagery and text from the interviews, the 25 platters she creates will depict each of the 25 women. Stefani wants the act of sharing these stories to serve as tool for healing for both African American women and men. This work will be shared in an exhibition in West Philadelphia, creating a space for women to discuss their relationships with men.
