Among the most vital artists working today are two octogenarians, Faith Ringgold and Aminah Robinson. Each of these extraordinary women creates work that incorporates and addresses the cultural legacy that black Americans inherited from their African ancestors. Over their combined 120 year creative journey, Ringgold and Robinson have reconstructed, in various media, the spirited and inventive multi-media forms of the African past. Their subjects, however, are contemporary or investigations of the recent past.

This exhibition celebrates the richness of their evocative art using the most recently produced series of each. With approximately twenty works from each artist, this exhibit of quilts, textiles, works on paper and paintings will demonstrate through image and narrative, their (and their neighbors) African-American experience in the United States.
