Have you heard of #GivingTuesday? Help us continue to bring dynamic and thoughtful exhibitions that uncover the richness and diversity of African Diasporic arts and cultures. Thousands of school children come to AAMP for tours every year, and we also participate in programs that increase access for lower-income individuals and teenagers. We hope to accomplish all of this and more in the coming years, and your support can make it possible! Offer the gift of art, history and culture on Tuesday, December 2nd, by participating in this global day of giving! http://ow.ly/Eh5uV

A few photos from today's programming! Nana Feather joined us to read "Crossing Bok Chitto: A Choctaw Tale of Friendship and Freedom" and Native Nations Dance Theater taught us about various Native American dances and cultures, then helped us make dreamcatchers to let the good dreams through and keep out all the bad ones!

Today's featured Shop on the Square artist is Olan Kent Reeves. As a textile artist interested in manifesting the correlation of rural surroundings with an urban ambiance, Olan enjoys exploring texture, color, and the universal mood of material. From bright dazzling cacti flowers to hypersonic transit lights, vivid colors are very apparent in his work. In conjunction, neutrals are just as charming, as are the diversity of grays housing a subway terminal. Using a variety of materials ranging from angora to silk, and merino to cashmere, Olan aims to replicate different surfaces found in the everyday. Fond of combining different fibers together to create an entirely new experience to the touch, he anticipates that when viewing his work, you will detect a sense of comparison between urban and rural culture and how it has galvanized his work as an artist.
