Kimberly Dummons, Tenement City Blues, 2017
April 9, 2021–June 4, 2021
“For several years my work has explored the concept of home, through sculpture, prints and collage. In my two-dimensional work, I am using color, pattern and texture to create prints and collage to talk about place, both literally and figuratively. I am simultaneously influenced by and reference quilt structure, with some pattern codes directing paths on the underground railroad.” – Dummons
