Carolyn Mazloomi

A self taught quilter working in the medium for over 55 years, Carolyn Mazloomi has had her works exhibited in well over 80 museums across the country. "These are not the quilts that grandma made," the artist says; "I create art that deals with tough subjects that people may not normally want to talk about." Considered to be one of the first artists to use the medium of quilting to further her social justice causes, Mazloomi speaks out on issues of police reform, equality in the public school system, literacy in Black neighborhoods, gun voilence awareness, and inequality in voting rights.
