Wandering Spirits: African Wax Prints

  • The Gregory School 1300 Victor Street Houston, TX, 77019 United States (map)

This exhibit is a tribute to the century-old handmade wax print designs and patterns used on many African textiles. Originating in Indonesia, this method was copied and industrialized by Europeans and exported to Africa. The success of the wax prints is driven by many factors such as culture, taste, and desires of African consumers.

This exhibit is sponsored by ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the National Endowment of the Arts.
