Open for viewing during normal FAC hours.
Internationally recognized African American artist Faith Ringgold began her artistic career more than 35 years ago as a painter. Today, she is best known for her painted story quilts-- art that combines painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling. Faith Ringgold: American Quilts features Ms. Ringgold's work including story quilts, color etchings, acrylic paintings, silkscreen prints, soft sculptures, and tankas. Art created by students relating to the Faith Ringgold November workshop at the FAC will also be displayed during the exhibition.
In today's multicultural society, Ms. Ringgold's work carries an important message: "We don't all have to be alike, and that for people to be different is wonderful and fine."
