This exhibit, “The Light of Freedom; Stories of African American Threads of My Family, Their Journeys Toward Freedom, and the Abolitionists,” features art by Karen Hampton. In Karen's words "As an artist of color, I have made a lifelong commitment to creating artwork that responds to the life of my ancestors. My lens is anthropology and I study my own genealogy. I travel in my ancestor's footsteps, I walked the roads where they lived, explored the plantations where they were enslaved. I am the storyteller. As their medium I provide a vehicle for my ancestor's spirits to transcend history and remain a historical memory. My medium is cloth - whether digitally printed, hand woven, or ages linens - pieces are imbued with the hopes and visions of African American lives, telling their stories from a maternal perspective."
