On this Mother’s Day, I am honoring a great Mother to our world – Faith Ringgold.
Tar Beach (Part I from the Woman on a Bridge series), 1988, Acrylic on canvas, bordered with printed, painted, quilted, and pieced cloth, 74 5/8 x 68 1/2 inches (189.5 x 174 cm), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York Gift, Mr. and Mrs. Gus and Judith Lieber, 1988
Artist, activist, honest and fearless, she is one of the great female inspirations to me.
She is in step with our past, our present and our future! Taking her creativity into the 21st century, she has developed a art quilt version of Sudoku, Quiltuduko! Available now, you can play the game and stay in her awesome art energy!
I appreciate her and honor her this Mother’s Day – one of the mothers of art quilts, a mother to women artists, a mother to our young children and a strong, beautiful mother to our country.
