Learn something new about our popular Faith Ringgold exhibition in 30 minutes or fewer! 

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays throughout the fall for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff. 

This week, Digital Media Specialist Laura Hoffman discusses selections from American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s. Through close looking and guided inquiry, participants will examine Ringgold’s work and reflect upon its themes.


Revealed through 49 rarely exhibited paintings, Faith Ringgold developed expressive figures and adapted African designs to reflect on momentous events that shaped America in the 1960s. These bold images represent Ringgold’s response to the Civil Rights and feminist movements.
