Description: Angie Redmond, ‘09, is
excited to bring her show
“Never a Bad Hair Day” to
the Bobbitt Visual Arts
Center beginning on Tuesday,
Oct. 17. Consisting of 21
paintings the exhibition
will run until Saturday,
Nov. 18 with a special
opportunity to meet the
artist and hear her spoken
word poetry during Albion
College’s Homecoming events
on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 12
p.m. until 2 p.m. at
Redmond’s reception in
Bobbitt.

Drawing on her senior art
showcase at Albion College,
“Crowning Glory,” Redmond
explains that her new show
is a celebration of the
natural hair movement within
the African American
community. The collection
features hairstyles of men
and women, modern styles,
and traditional hairstyles
of various African nations.

Redmond explains, “My art in
general is about
unapologetically being
yourself. Having natural
hair myself, I have faced a
lot of ridicule and negative
views towards my coils.
Drawing from those
experiences I create
paintings and drawings to
celebrate natural hair for
its distinctiveness and
beauty.”

This exhibit is free and the
public is invited to attend.
