My Brothers’ Thread: Fiber Works by and for Men of the African Diaspora gathers artists of diverse cultural backgrounds, from Harlem to Trinidad to Newark, to show that a single thread can bind a community together. The work includes quilts and other media by artists Robert Cash, Laura R. Gadson, Jerry Gant, Stuart McClean, Marvin Sin, and Maluwa Williams-Myers. The exhibition is organized by Harlem Needle Arts, Inc., a craft institute founded in 2003 to preserve and promote fiber art and artisans of the African Diaspora. Harlem Needle Arts’ activities include organizing exhibitions and workshops to introduce needle arts and crafts to the Harlem community and providing resource development and technical assistance to artists.
