Family Art Project: Ubuntu—I am Because We Are


Wave Hill House

The African term ubuntu, which means humanity towards others in Nguni-Bantu, serves as the cornerstone for visiting artist Tijay Mohammed’s art project, which is inspired by his mother. Anchored in West African cultural traditions, the project focuses attention on our connections to migration and creates a gathering space for celebration of all. Primarily using African wax fabric and incorporating other assorted materials and objects, participants create mixed-media portraits in tribute to loved ones—and as a celebration of ourselves.

Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
