Titled Malian Mudcloth and Survival, the exhibit of bogolan textiles and images artfully brings together the tradition and the beauty of the textiles created in Mali. It includes an explanation of the origins of bogolan (mudcloth), how it is made as well as the interesting story of Rubia’s partners in Djenne and Segou. Come to see this exhibit up through December in Cary Memorial Library and learn more about Rubia’s work in Mali!
We are grateful for the lovely coverage of Rubia in the Colonial Times Magazine! Find our feature on pages 32-34 at http://colonialtimesmagazine.com/7824/! “From Mali With Hope” brings the inspirational story of Rubia to life and is a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about Rubia.
