Faith Ringgold at Spelman

Spelman College Museum of Fine Art has a new exhibition, “American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s,” on view Feb. 2-May 19, 2012. This is Faith Ringgold’s first solo exhibition in Atlanta since the High Museum presented the nationally-touring exhibition, “Faith Ringgold: A Twenty-Five Year Survey” in 1990, and marks the Atlanta premiere of paintings from Ringgold’s “American People” (1963-1967) and “Black Light” (1967-1971) series and related political posters.

An opening celebration for the politically charged exhibition will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 6:30 p.m. There will be a lecture on collecting African-American art (Feb. 19) and a family community day (March 17), both in collaboration with the National Black Arts Festival. The Museum will host Ringgold for an artist lecture on March 22. There will be a closing reception for the exhibition on May 21.
