Guided by the Ancestors, Tina Williams Brewer

An internationally honored story quilter, Brewer is best known for her artistic exploration of African American history and the personal experiences associated with it. This show is a retrospective of her fiber works along with new quilts – a series is based on The Pittsburgh Courier's 100th anniversary. In addition, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts presents Brewer with a Lifetime Achievement Award on Friday, June 12. It is only the second time PCA has honored an artist with this prestigious award.
