Two pieces of Adebunmi Gbadebo’s sculpture is featured in a current exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit entitled: “Hear Me Now”, The Black Potters of Old Edgefield, South Carolina is receiving widespread attention and runs at the museum until Feb., 2023. After that time, it will be part of a traveling exhibit to major museums across the US. During Adbunmi’s participation in NJIT’s Certificate in Creative Placemaking course, students were introduced to the concepts of “Creative Placekeeping.” This practice is based on honoring and building upon the cultural history of a community. “Adebunmi’s” work is crafted from black hair and clay from the True Blue Plantation cemetery where her slave ancestors’ remains are buried.
