We have the honor of being a featured artist in the Mint Museum Uptown! Gordon Holliday (@Roole.co) invited us to be a part of his show, Yasuke: The Hidden Ronin exhibit. Our Moss Art was a perfect addition to this eco-conscious, “art-full” experience. Check out all the details below on how you can view our work IRL.

Side Note: If you’ve been following us online for a long time and have yet to order a piece from us or see any of our work in real life, this is the PERFECT opportunity. Having a chance to view these piece away from a screen is a game-changer. Trust us… Moss Art is meant to be enjoyed in person – the dimension, the lush factor, the connection to nature – it is totally worth seeing!

Art Exhibit: Yasuke: The Hidden Ronin

About the Exhibit: The story of Yasuke is a fascinating story about the first black samurai. In understanding the history of traditional Japanese quilts, images of what Yasuke would wear in today’s modern times, inspired by contemporary fashion elements, were developed. In an effort to incorporate more sustainable methods of creation, donated, reworked, and up-cycled leftover materials were used to create this exhibition. Utilizing the traditional Japanese quilting style of Sashiko and Boro, 10 modern kimonos were created to honor the intersection of African and Japanese cultures through Yasuke.

Artists on Display: The Savage Way, Breonna Collier, Cordrell Colbert/ JMPCUT, Daremen Jones, Fart.PDF, CHEEKS.CLT, BRUTALBLOOM, JUS10, MAUVEOSHUN, Garreth Doug, Justin Hicks, Wabwilam Mugala, and Demarc Ramanand.
