Virgil Gamwell Wright Lyceum Series: Ancestor Project II by Faith Ringgold
Benedict College in Columbia presents Ancestor Project II February 9 – April 7 in the Ponder Gallery. This second series of quilted and narrative works was conceived by Faith Ringgold as a collaborative project to inspire visitors to rise up with ancestors to dance and sing songs of joy, love, understanding, forgiveness, and peace. Ringgold and artists Linda Freeman and Grace Mathews traveled to Paris, France, in March 2017 to work on the project. A lecture takes place March 27 at 6 p.m. in the Antisdel Chapel, followed by a reception in the gallery. Free.
