Gratiot Griot

The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) is hosting “Gratiot Griot,” the first solo museum exhibition of mixed-media collage artist Judy Bowman.

In her visual works, Bowman (also a storyteller) utilizes handmade archival papers that combine rich colors, textures and patterns.

In West African tradition, a griot is a storyteller who, through creative performance, preserves and shares the cultural legacy and histories of their people.

Born and raised in Detroit’s legendary Black Bottom neighborhood, just off of the iconic Gratiot Avenue, Bowman creates visual works inspired by stories of African American life.

“Gratiot Griot” opened Oct. 29, 2022 and will be on view at MOCAD through Mar. 25, 2023. We also note (and appreciate) that the museum stays open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays.
