Carolyn Lawrence is a painter, printmaker, educator, and member of AfriCOBRA (African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists) who also contributed to Chicago’s iconic mural The Wall of Respect.
Lawrence will be in conversation with fiber artist Robert Paige, who has developed several fashion collections for African American consumers that he sold through major retailers. Paige also coined the term “Cool Aid colors” then used by members of AfriCOBRA.
