Faith Ringgold (American, b. 1930) Sunflower Quilting Bee at Arles, 1996 With bold color, inventive composition, and words written straight from the heart, Faith Ringgold’s art speaks out in a clear voice. Her painted story quilt Sunflower Quilting Bee at Arles, a version of which is reproduced on this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, honors eight powerful African American women in history: Madam C. J. Walker, Sojourner Truth, Ida Wells, Fannie Lou Hamer, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Ella Baker. A ninth woman, on the lower left, is Willia Marie Simone, a fictional character created by the artist. Vincent van Gogh is pictured at the right. In Ringgold’s words, her quilt is “an international symbol of our dedication to change the world.”
