Born in Harlem, NY (1947). Lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.


Dindga McCannon is a mixed-media artist who explores music, cultural heritage, feminism, and social justice through her intricate textiles and works on canvas. Self-taught, McCannon became a leader in an alternative African-American art ecosystem, which gave artists who were not welcome in the mainstream art world a place to create and commune.  As a co-founder of both Weusi, an influential African-American art collective, and Where We At, the first women’s artist collective in Harlem, McCannon not only created space for her own creative exploration, but provided opportunity and support for an entire generation of Black artists.
