Mississippi Arts Hour – Yolande Van Heerden

March 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Yolande Van Heerden

This week on the Mississippi Arts Hour, Maria Zeringue interviews fiber artist Yolande Van Heerden of Greenwood, Mississippi. From colorful quilts, license plate art, silent wind chimes, and more, Yolande’s work is centered on creativity, storytelling, and community. She is also a teacher and passes on her love of craft and quilting through public workshops and in her role as Art Director for the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta. This year, Yolande is a recipient of MAC’s Folk Arts Fellowship grant. In this week’s episode, we discuss the impact of the pandemic on her work, quilting as an improvisational art form, new projects, art clubs, and more.

Listen on Sunday, March 24, at 5 p.m. on MPB Think Radio, or subscribe to the podcast through your favorite podcasting service.
