Explore the Fashion of Creole Women Through the Eyes of Artist, Chelsey Antoinette
Owned and operated by the city of Dallas, the South Dallas Cultural Center was built in 1986 as an arts center with an African American focus. With a wide variety of programs inspired by the vibrancy and diversity of the African Diaspora, the South Dallas Cultural Center seeks to educate and inspire through the visual, media, literary and performing arts.
With that being said, the Tignon exhibit opened in September, and the foot traffic through this exhibit has not been slowing down by any stretch of the imagination.
Tignon pronounced [teyôN] in French means cloth or handkerchief and is used to reference the headwraps of Creole women. It’s presented by Dallas based artist Chesley Antoinette through fashion photography of wearable, sculptural turbans, which were popular during the historical period of the 18th century.
This exhibition is free and open to the public!
Even though Oxford at The Boulevard Apartments in Corinth, Texas provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
