Scope note(s)

  • Opened February 22, 2004, remained open through 2004. In 1995, UBC graduate student Michelle Willard spent four months in West Africa as a volunteer with Canada World Youth. During a return trip in 2001, Willard, with the support and advice of Ghanaian people both there and in Vancouver, developed a collection of printed cloths that the Ghanaians consider to be highly significant. Her exhibit, opening during Black History Month, shows how these cloths are worn in Ghana to proclaim political loyalties and commemorate important events.
