VIDEO: Faith Ringgold: Quilting As An Art Form

We decided to kick-off National Quilting Month with one of our favorite quilters, FAITH RINGGOLD

Faith Ringgold (October 8, 1930 – New York City) is a painter, writer, activist, mixed media sculptor and performance artist, best known for her narrative quilts. Ringgold’s artistic practice is extremely broad and diverse, and includes media from painting to quilts, from sculptures and performance art to children’s books. As an educator, she taught in the New York City Public school system and at the college level. In 1973, she quit teaching public school to devote herself to creating art full-time.
