The Crime Museum’s Haunted House is nothing like you have ever experienced. Imagine being alone, standing next to an electric chair that took the lives of hundreds of inmates, after hours, in the dark. You may think you can handle it, but at every turn you are faced with the dreadful descision…do I keep going? Your heart rate increases, you can’t take the intense pressure.

Exhibition – Ubuhle Women: Beadwork And The Art Of Independence

Date: October 26, 2014

Time: 10:00am to 5:00pm

Venue:

Address:

1901 Fort Place Southeast

Washington, DC 20020

From: The Anacostia Community Museum

Ndwango (means “cloth”) is a new form of bead art developed by a community of women living and working together in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The Ubuhle (means “beautiful”) artists’ community was established in 1999 by local resident Bev Gibson and master beader Ntombephi Ntombela [En-Tom-be-Fi En-tom-bell-la] to empower local women with the means to provide for their families through their art. The flat surface of the textile onto which the Ubuhle women bead is reminiscent of the Xhosa headscarves and skirts that many of them grew up wearing. Using black fabric as a canvas and different colored Czech glass beads as the medium of expression, the Ubuhle community has re-imagined the longstanding beading tradition as a contemporary art form. Twenty-nine works are featured, including The African Cruxifixion.
