National Black Arts Festival Will Inspire

The National Black Arts Festival begins the third Saturday in July each year and continues for 10 days in Atlanta. While there are few quilts featured in this year’s festival, there is still a lot to enjoy and be inspired by.

The quilts of Aisha Lumumba are on display at Greenbriar Mall. You can also see quilts at the Underground Railroad Quilt Code Museum in the Underground Entertainment Complex. The Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild will show some of their quilts and demonstrate quilting techniques at the High Museum of Art July 22 and July 23. Each year the festival is different. For instance, last year renowned quilter Faith Ringgold presented a lecture about her astounding career.

Even if you are not looking at quilts per se, the wide range of talent and creativity presented during the festival will surely inspire your creativity. Get out of the house and go get inspired!
