Artist Sonya Clark's Homage to Madam C.J. Walker
A new exhibit at the Goya Contemporary Gallery here in Baltimore is inspired by the civil rights activist and entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker, who, more than a century ago, created a company that manufactured and sold hair-care products for black women. In the process, Walker became a millionaire.
The exhibition, called Hair/Goods: An Homage to Madam C.J. Walker, is a collection of work by the internationally acclaimed fiber artist Sonya Clark, who is a Professor of Art at Amherst College in Massachusetts.
Today's guests also include:
A’Lelia Bundles, the biographer and great-great-granddaughter of Madam Walker.
And Amy Raehse, who is executive director and partner at Goya Contemporary Gallery and curator of the Walker exhibit.
