Description

Hadiya Williams | "More than a Notion" Artist Talk X Black Pepper Paperie Pop Up
Sunday, September 30th
Shop open from 1PM-5PM

Artist talk at 3PM

TICKETS ARE NEEDED FOR 3PM ARTIST TALK ONLY - Pop-Up Shop will be open to all who come!

Hadiya Williams and co-collaborator Risikat "Kat" Okedeyi will engage in dialogue on the process of creating Layers, the installation in the Woodlawn dining room.

In a one-on-one conversation, the two will share how the idea came to be, the spiritual connection to the project and the overall go of the installation. A pop-up shop featuring similar items included in the installation and Hadiya's wearable art will also be available for sale.

Hadiya Williams is an art director and intuitive visual arts maker. She is also the owner of Black Pepper Paperie, based in Washington, DC, a creative maker’s studio that focuses on boutique event design and one-of-a-kind handmade clayware and printed works.
Her work has been featured at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, and recently her letterpress invitation for a wedding dubbed the "Blackest Wedding of 2016" has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American Art and Culture.
With a background in graphic design and art direction, Hadiya uses intuition, culture and design to create unique pieces and memorable experiences.

This project is funded by the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, with support from The JPB Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
