Dolls Gone Wild – The 33rd Annual Black Doll Show

December 14-February 8, 2014

Opening Reception: December 14, 3:00-6:00pm

Featuring Performances by Marcus Miller's Project World Drum, Lula Washington Dance Theatre, and artist/curator Dale Guy Madison

Black Dolls are going wild at The William Grant Still Arts Center! For the 33rd annual exhibition of Black Dolls, doll artists and curators Dale Guy Madison and Cheryl Williams have chosen to place handmade and collectable dolls in a virtual rain forest that will transform the galleries into a hand-painted jungle-like setting for this year’s theme “Dolls Gone Wild.” Dolls that reflect the wilderness – the ocean, the avian bird life, and inspired by animal print in general – will be displayed as you step into the “jungle” of dolls.

The opening on Saturday, December 14 will include a live concert by Marcus Miller’s Project World Drum, an animal themed dance performance from the Lula Washington Dance Theatre and a live performance from Dale Guy Madison.

To add to the jungle-like setting at the opening on December 14th, get wild and wear some clothing that features animal print!

Black Dolls showcased will include those from the past and present, in both abstract and literal designs, and are primarily hand-made by artists, all reflecting the diversity, subversion, and whimsical feeling of animal prints.
