Ivy, Gilded in Black

Ivy Wahome's new exhibition shows the Victorian era from a different perspective.

Ivy Wahome, from Nakuru, Kenya is the first black woman member of the I.A.T.S.E. local union 415 since it was chartered in Tucson. She is currently working on her MFA in Costume Design and Production at the School of Theater, Film, and Television at the University of Arizona. Her show, “Gilded in Black” sets the stage to show us a flipped version of the Victorian period from the African cultural perspective.
