Faesthetic #13 contributor Molly Dilworth, has an upcoming show. You should check it out if you can…

“The subject of Molly Dilworth’s current project draws from the inspirations of the historic African American Cemetery located in New York City.

Originally adjacent to City Hall, this cemetery was later relocated to the dilapidated Delancey mansion on the Lower East Side. While the history of this site has been built over and the citizens erased from the collective imagination of the city, Dilworth’s installation will once again mark this historic site that is an important overlooked part of American history. The design created for this site-specific public installation is based on various quilt patterns, which were used in the Underground Railroad.

The installation will be on view this spring at the “Old School” courtyard, 233 Mott Street, May 7 12:00pm – 4:00am, May 8 12:00pm – 8:00pm and by appointment.

A selection of research paintings for Lodge 441 will be available for a limited time, please contact the gallery for inquiries. To view additional images visit the Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mollydilworth/sets/72157626369367923/
