Albion College Alumna Celebrates Natural Hair in Art Exhibit “Never a Bad Hair Day” (Saturday, October 21, 2017 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

Angie Redmond, ‘09, is excited to bring her show “Never a Bad Hair Day” to the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Consisting of 21 paintings the exhibition will run until Saturday, Nov. 18 with a special opportunity to meet the artist and hear her spoken word poetry during Albion College’s Homecoming events on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m. at Redmond’s reception in Bobbitt.

Drawing on her senior art showcase at Albion College, “Crowning Glory,” Redmond explains that her new show is a celebration of the natural hair movement within the African American community. The collection features hairstyles of men and women, modern styles, and traditional hairstyles of various African nations.

Redmond explains, “My art in general is about unapologetically being yourself. Having natural hair myself, I have faced a lot of ridicule and negative views towards my coils. Drawing from those experiences I create paintings and drawings to celebrate natural hair for its distinctiveness and beauty.”

This exhibit is free and the public is invited to attend. For more information, contact the Albion College Art Department at 517/629-0246 or .
