Statement by Cherice Harrison-Nelson, on the artistic response to Zina Mitchell’s experience: “Zina’s Trials, Tribulations and Triumphs” is inspired by the distinct ceremonial attire created by people of African descent from New Orleans, debuted on carnival morning and worn during ritual neighborhood processions. Resistance and self-actualization are hallmarks of the tradition. The attire is characterized by narrative beaded images, feather design art and aurora borealis Swarovski rhinestone design embellishments.
