Symphony in the Flint Hills Signature Event
If you happen to be attending the 2023 Symphony in the Flint Hills, stop by the Meet & Greet Tent between 2 and 5pm to hear from artist-in-residence Sandra Scott-Revelle about her textile work and research into Black history.Â
Sandra was born in Sedalia, MO but spent most of her life in the southwestern desert regions of Arizona, then the open spaces of east Texas. Sandra gained basic sewing skills on her motherâ€™s antique Singer. From an early age, her interest in personal stories expanded to Black history during her college years. As an adult she discovered the treasures of slave narratives. Her growing compilation of historical fiction weaves color into the white spaces of their accounts, granting access into likely events and conversations.
