Ingrid Taylor-Humphrey, a native Floridian, is the artist and creator of “The Original Sister Dolls Collection.” This collection was created as a worldwide representation of the sisterhood of women of color, and it was inspired by African and African American culture.

Each doll in the collection has a uniqueness in design, application of hair, and style of dress, among other traits, that gives it a distinct personality and effect. According to the artist, the collection is not massed produced, which makes each piece in the collection special.

There is no cost to view the exhibit and it is open to the public. The Mary Sue Rich Community Center is located at 1821 NW 21st Avenue in Ocala, and its hours of operation are Monday through Friday (8 a.m. to 8 p.m.), Saturday (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.), and Sunday (12 p.m. to 5 p.m.).
