Faith Ringgold Book Signing
February 17, 2009
As an artist Faith Ringgold is interested in themes of history. One recurring theme addressed by the artist in both her quilt series Coming to Jones Road, as well as in her children's illustrations for the book Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky, is that of the Underground Railroad. The Danforth Museum of Art is proud to present exhibits and educational programming with several local partners that explore this important theme. A book signing with this acclaimed artist and children's illustrator is scheduled for Tuesday, February 17, 3-5pm. The book signing is opening to the public and is included with the price of admission. Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky and 1992 Caldecott Honor Book Tar Beach will be available for purchase in the Shop at the Danforth.
