Nejeri Kinuthia FFF

This month we are continuing our partnership with local Orlando artists with Njeri Kinuthia! For this project, we will use beads and fabric to create collages and sculptures inspired by Bessie Harvey. Harvey’s use of brightly colored beads connects to Njeri’s collage creation Star of Hope. We will use twigs to create the sculptures, similar to Harvey’s tree root sculptures, wrapping them in beads and fabric or painting on them! We hope this project inspires joy and a connection to nature.
