      More Places of Our Own by Syd Carpenter
    • Friday, April 25, 2014
    • Philadelphia aritst Syd Carpenter's sculptures, inspired by her recent trips to Georgia and South Carolina, explore the architecture of African American farms and gardens. These new steel and clay sculptures expand upon Carpenter’s commemoration of the pivotal role black farmers and gardeners played in maintaining stabilizing and sustaining the African American community throughout the deadly and debilitating era of Jim Crow.
