Faith Ringgold

With an emphasis on clear, direct storytelling, Faith Ringgold's art explores issues of feminism and race in American history. Since the 1960s, she has achieved renown as a painter, quilt-maker, activist, and the author and illustrator of acclaimed children's books.

She is best known for her "story quilts," which she started to make in the 1970s. These painted textiles unite African-American folk traditions and historically "feminine" domestic art forms.

Ringgold has a long history of exhibitions at major institutions, including retrospectives at the Studio Museum in Harlem (1984) and the Fine Arts Museum of Long Island (1990). She has received numerous awards for her art and her illustrated children's books, including a Guggenheim Fellowship for painting, a Caldecott Honor, and two National Endowment for the Arts grants.
