Michael Cummings

African Inspirations

Show: May 6 – June 21


Cummings has successfully synthesized aesthetic qualities found in folk art, in African and African American art (think Romare Bearden), in music (specifically, Jazz), and in diverse textile and non-textile narrative traditions...He is committed to telling the stories of African-Americans across a broad historical, social, cultural, philosophical, and mythological spectrum.”--Michael James, Chair & Ardis James Professor of Textiles, Merchandising  & Fashion Design, University of Nebraska
