Sibyl #3 is on her way to Cali for her first west coast show, "The Black Woman is God: Divine Revolution." And I can't tell you how excited i am! the spirit behind this exhibition is essentially why I started the Sibyl Series - a reclamation, a healing, a subversion of eurocentric and patriarchal notions of the divine, a testimony and a protest that #theblackwomanisgod.
Co-Curated by Karen Seneferu and Melorra Green the show opens to the public July 20, 6pm-10pm at SOMArts Cultural Center.

recently happened upon these features of Sibyl #3 in all her glory! so happy to have participated in BAM this year.
