In 2017, the Ohr O’Keefe Museum of Art hosted an exciting exhibition of contemporary embroideries created by artist Ruth Miller. This fall, we are offering artists, crafters, students, and art-makers of all media an opportunity to experience embroidery-making from Ruth herself. This is a class geared toward adults but serious students 9 to 18 years of age will be considered.

Join OOMA in welcoming exhibiting artist Clifton Webb as he discusses his artistic background and the influences behind his current exhibit “Icons: The Sacred Muse.” Webb creates striking sculpture using a visual ‘alphabet’ derived from years of studying of from the African continent.  This visual alphabet developed in an effort to represent, and to pay homage to, those who went before.  It is a means of creating artwork that commands reverence and is identifiable as “African American.”
