Week 5 Part 3 FAITH RINGGOLD

Faith Ringgold, For the Woman's House, 1971

The painting, called “For the Woman’s House,” had been housed at Rikers Island since 1971 but was nearly thrown away after being whitewashed at the orders of prison officials. The painting was based on interviews by Ringgold of female inmates and was the first of Ringgold’s public commissions.

Today let’s tap into sharing the power within and the power without.  Nurture it.  Invite someone for tea or coffee and pass on some feminine wisdom.  Listen carefully, and let them pass on some wisdom to you as well.

Talented young artist, Rajwi, teaches me so much.

SHARE THE PROCESS; SHARE THE ART
