Pieces of the Past: The Art of Gwendolyn Magee

Magee

Gwendolyn Magee, an African American artist from High Point, NC, created quilts that narrate key moments in African American history.  Students conducted research on Magee’s life and the history represented in her powerful, emotion-filled pieces.  Collaborating with the artist’s family and community stakeholders, they created an exhibition at the High Point Museum about Magee, her art, and the influence of her home town on her work.
