Visual Art and the Politics of Race and Culture: A Conference Featuring Faith Ringgold

This one-day program was previously named: From Africa, to Harlem, to the Classroom: An Introduction to African American Artists, Their Inspirations and Their Work.

It was held for art educators K- 12 for Continuing Education Credit (6 Act 48 hours) at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in October 2006.

The program was created for the Art Education Department as a result of Trish Maunder's Master's Thesis: From Harlem to the Classroom: An Educational Resource Highlighting Four Pioneering African American Artists (2006)

The program has since been renamed: Visual Art and the Politics of Race and Culture and is a traveling program designed for presentation in colleges, art institutions and museums.

Celebrating Faith Ringgold:
Stories Through Art

Celebrating Faith Ringgold was presented to art educators from Philadelphia's Mural Arts: Big Picture Program in January 2007. This full day program was the starting point for educators to learn about the life and work of international African American artist Faith Ringgold before creating a two semester long series of art making workshops with Philadelphia youth. The project will culminate in the creation of a large-scale mural of Ringgold's painted quilt Sunflower Quilting Bee at Arles (1991) by a professional muralist. Check back for updated information.
