Faith Ringgold's AMERICA: Early Works and Story Quilts

March 2nd through April 27th 2013

For fifty years, Faith Ringgold’s art has commented on racism and gender inequality. Though best known as the progenitor of the African American story quilt revival, it is her pointed political paintings of the 1960s that are the focus of this exhibition.
