Join us at Beadology in downtown Iowa City to celebrate the opening of the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library’s new exhibit, Ubuhle Women: Beadwork and the Art of Independence (May 12-Sept. 17, 2018). Ubuhle Women showcases a new form of bead art, the ndwango (“cloth”), developed by a community of women living and working together in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Ubuhle co-creator Bev Gibson will be on hand to share stories about the community’s artists and the art featured in the exhibit. Works of art will be available for purchase, and light refreshments will be provided.
