American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s 

June  21 – November 10, 2013

Before originating the African American story quilt revival in the 1970s, Faith Ringgold painted bold images in response to the Civil Rights and feminist movements. Her unprecedented exploration of race and gender in America is revealed through 45 rarely-exhibited paintings in which she developed expressive figures and adapted African designs to reflect on the momentous events that shaped America in the 1960s.

Faith is a beacon and role model for all of us multi-talented women. She shows how it can be combined and work together. I'm grateful for her work and presence.
