Description:

The Institute for Women and Art is pleased to announce the publication of Yes I Can, playing cards custom-designed by artist Faith Ringgold in conjunction with the opening of her retrospective at the Mason Gross Galleries Declaration of Independence: 50 Years of Art by Faith Ringgold . Ringgold spent months creating a beautiful and truly one-of-a-kind, full color, custom face deck of poker playing cards, 3 1⁄2 x 2 1⁄2 inches, in a full color box. The card set titled Yes I Can (2009), vibrantly captures elements of the American cultural and political landscape--both currently and historically. "Yes I Can" is published by the Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers.

Price of Yes I Can is $50 while supplies last.  Do not miss your opportunity to own a piece created by a true national treasure, Faith Ringgold! Call 732-932-3726 or email: womanart@rci.rutgers.edu.
