In February 2018, Memphis Brooks Museum of Art in Tennessee is bringing the Fowler Museum’s exhibition African-Print Fashion Now! to the South. Visitors will be introduced to the dynamic traditions of African dress featuring colorful, boldly patterned printed cloth, through an inspiring and mesmerizing traveling exhibition. To celebrate the opening of their newest exhibition, we’ve partnered with the Brooks for January’s African Art design challenge and today, we’re so pleased to welcome Karen Davis, Communications Manager at Brooks to share more about the upcoming exhibition to inspire your design challenge entry.
January design challenge
The Spoonflower community is a melting pot of designers from all over the world and during January’s design challenges, we’ll be celebrating this designer diversity with a sampler of five internationally inspired themes. We’ll be starting our adventure in Africa with a challenge welcoming the newest exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art and ending our excursion in Japan honoring a traditional paper art technique. Pack your design tool box because it’s time for a design adventure!
