I had a chance to interview many artists in particular legendary African American painter, sculptor and activist Faith Ringgold.
Ms. Ringgold was this year's recipient of the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
After receiving the award Ms. Ringgold she discussed her art, vision, philosophy and longtime activism. The artist is well known for her painted story quilts, which blurs the line between “high art” and “craft” by combining painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling – which date back to the 1960’s. She also discussed her experiences with her written and illustrated books originating with Tar Beach in 1991. Guests and VIPs mingled with the Hamptons elite collectors while enjoying cocktails. The event was hosted by the Houston Museum of African American Culture, with support from Harold Ford, Sr. and Leonard Jones.
