Ọmọlará Williams McCallister: We Too Sing America
May 29 – July 18

We, Too, Sing America consists of 1,440 muslin squares hand embroidered with a description of an everyday act of emotional labor. The squares are dyed to read “for you,” “for me,” or “for us” in white letters on an indigo background. Artist Ọmọlará Williams McCallister (pronouns: O/love/beloved) encourages visitors to tell their own stories through O’s work. Visitors can move the squares and contribute their own to the conversation. The goal is to invite interaction to create a sense of community and dialogue around healing from societal pressures and oppression.
