Featured in the in the NAAM museum exhibit You’re Not From Around Here, Are You?

This triptych of altered books is mounted on antique washboards, exploring the American Dream as filtered through a black and female lens. The series centers on the heart of that complicated dream: owning a home of one’s own.

A repeating image in the center niche unites the three books: a family photo of the artist’s brother, running into their childhood home. This image is layered over other buildings significant in the African American experience. The first shows a slave auction “house”; the second shows the childhood home of the artist’s mother; the third depicts the artist’s first home in the Northwest.

This artwork will only be sold as a triptych, not as individual pieces. To schedule an installment payment plan, please email Lisa Myers Bulmash on the Contact Me page with “Available Art Inquiry” in the subject line.
