Loïs Mailou Jones (1905-1998) was an influential African-American artist and teacher during her seven-decade career, spanning the Harlem Renaissance to the turn of the 21st century. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, her career began in textile design before she focused on fine arts. Her style shifted and evolved multiple times in response to influences in her life, especially her extensive travels. She worked with different media and techniques throughout her long career and up until her death at age 92. Her travels throughout Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean influenced and changed how she painted. Her work echoes her pride in her African roots and American ancestry. Her work in design, painting, illustration, and academia continues to receive national attention.

Having come to Martha’s Vineyard since her childhood, and receiving early encouragement from the community there, Ms. Jones continued to spend time on the Vineyard right up until her death in 1998. Visitors to Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard can still ride the carousel:
“Try your luck at catching the brass ring and winning a free ride on the oldest working carousel in the U.S., which has been enchanting children and adults for over a hundred years. The 20 hand-carved horses on this official historic landmark have real horsehair manes and tails.”
