A featured piece that will be in The William Grant Still Arts Center is “Christie”.

Christie | Oil On Canvas

This painting features the lovely Christie!  1968 welcomed Christie into the Mattel family, Barbie’s first African American friend.
Christie is an important figure in the Black Power movement, appearing the same year as the black-gloved salute by John Carlos and Tommie Smith in the Olympics and the year before TVs Julia appeared.  When Christie first appeared on the doll market, she made the bold, undeniable statement that an ebony skinned doll can be strikingly beautiful too. Unlike her predecessors and contemporaries, Christie was sophisticated, savvy, and up-to-the-minute. Like Barbie, Christie broke stereotypes and became a standard-bearer who permanently altered the American media’s multi-ethnic definition of beauty.
Christie is gleaming with inner brilliance, wearing a gold and silver lame jumpsuit.  Bright and beautiful, she’s got the midas touch!
