Elizabeth Catlett

Hi All,

This weekend, I went to see an exhibit featuring the work of Elizabeth Catlett at the Mexican Cultural Institute on 16th Street in northwest DC. Click here to learn more about the Catlett exhibit. It closes on May 29. If you are in DC, consider attending Professor David Driscoll’s lecture about Catlett’s work on March 27 at 3:00 p.m. at the Mexican Cultural Institute.  It’s free!

Catlett is one of my favorite artists.  She was born in DC in 1915 and is  a graduate of Howard University (like me!). Click here to learn more about Catlett.

I have given the world my songs by Elizabeth Catlett

The highlight of my visit to the Mexican Cultural Institute was seeing Catlett’s I have given the world my songs.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this piece of art.  It inspired a poem in my new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery. Click here to listen to me read the poem. FYI – I also discuss Catlett’s work in my novel Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One.
