Bisa Butler Weaves Black History Into Art

If you haven't had heard the name Bisa Butler by now, then are you in for a treat with what you are about to see. Bisa takes moments throughout black history, and creates life-size quilted portraits with vibrant colors that will capture your imagination and attention from a mile away. In this profile from CBS Evening News, Bisa is interviewed about just what makes her quilts so special.


From CBS Evening News:


"Bisa Butler's artwork has a way of stopping people in their tracks. The quiltmaker’s portraits looks like they are from a painter's brush. Maurice DuBois has more."

What a wonderful tribute by Bisa Butler to African-American history, a undeniable part of the American story. Breath-taking work!
