An Interwoven Legacy: The Black Ash Basket of Kelly Church and Cherish Parrish

Grand Rapids Art Museum
101 Monroe Center NW,
Grand Rapids, MI 49503

An Interwoven Legacy: The Black Ash Basketry of Kelly Church and Cherish Parrish also foregrounds the two artists’ other primary motivations: the importance of maintaining the basketmaking tradition within their culture and their advocacy for the black ash tree’s survival, which is being decimated by an invasive insect. These issues are critically important for people whose cultural survival depends on passing traditions on to the next generations, whether through language, ceremonies, or practices like basketry.
