Currently, on exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85, Ms. McCannon was born and raised in Harlem where she began her artistic career at age 16 with the Weusi Artists Collective. She combines many different media into what she calls "ArtQuilts". Ms. McCannon has taught in schools, shelters, and other alternative venues for over 5 decades. Her work is exhibited worldwide including the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Smithsonian, Arts Horizons LeRoy Neiman Art Center, Morris Jumel Manison and the Hamilton Landmark Gallery in Harlem.
