Award-winning artist. Arts educator, innovator and provocateur. For over six decades, Faith Ringgold's oeuvre of artistry and activism has been revered by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Amiri Baraka and arts critics and curators of major museums around the world. Her extraordinary body of work-that encompasses politically charged paintings and searing prints about race and gender inequality, such as the recent Museum of Modern Art acquisition of her early landmark, The American People Series: Die, 1967, to her famous and groundbreaking story quilts, Tar Beach and Maya's Quilt of Life, commissioned by Oprah Winfrey as a birthday gift to the late Dr. Maya Angelou-have created a powerful and startling canvas that capture, confound and confront audiences with the beauty, struggles and diversity of the African American experience. A proud NJ resident, she now brings that spirit and sense of wonder and magic to the celebration of Newark's 350th anniversary and its residents in an exclusive commemorative print titled A Day in Newark's 350th Year Celebration.

Now until October 26, two hundred signed and numbered prints of A Day in Newark's 350th Year Celebration.

On-line purchases are available exclusively at ShopAljira. The prints can also be purchased via credit cards, cash and Paypal at the Newark Museum Shop, 49 Washington Street.
