About the artist

Murjoni Merriweather

Murjoni Merriweather is a sculptor whose work is based on her friends and family. Primarily working in clay, and often adorned with braids, grills, or earrings, her work confronts stereotypes about Blackness.  Her work upends traditional bust sculptures and European standards of "beauty" instead celebrating and normalizing what is natural about Black bodies and Black culture. Merriweather believes the best way to create and talk about Black culture is through art. Merriweather has exhibited at many galleries, including Deitch Gallery and Eubie Blake Cultural Center.
