This exhibit will illuminate the obscured history of African contributions to craft, music, and dance in Western North Carolina. Drawing connections from the 17th through 21st centuries, the Jagged Path will demonstrate how African traditions that survived the Middle Passage have helped create the culture of Western North Carolina through interviews, performances, historic artifacts, artist residencies, and more.
The Jagged Path is excited to feature the following artists (in alphabetic order): LaKisha Blount, Marie T. Cochran, Nathan Favors & Mariela de Leeuw, Theresa Gloster, Cara Hagan, Victoria Casey McDonald, Jim McDowell, Jenny Pickens, Viola Spells, Valeria Watson, and Junaluska Heritage Association.
Museum & exhibit hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. Museum admission is free.
