Our next installment of Muscarelle Reads will be Faith Ringgold's We Flew over the Bridge, which chronicles the fascinating story of her life. Ringgold is one of the country's preeminent African American artists and an award-winning children's book author. Ringgold's artworks--startling "story quilts," politically charged paintings, and more--hang in the Studio Museum in Harlem. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, as well as the Muscarelle Museum of Art. Ringgold's path to success has not been easy. In this gorgeously illustrated memoir, she looks back and shares the story of her struggles, growth, and triumphs. Ringgold recollects how she had to surmount a wall of prejudices as she worked to refine her artistic vision and raise a family. At the same time, the story she tells is one of warm family memories and sustaining friendships, community involvement, and hope for the future.

Muscarelle Explorations: The Voice of the Artist is made possible by our partner, The Williamsburg Landing.

For a brief, dazzling moment, Ravenna was an unlikely refuge for a world falling apart. The city’s history, enshrined in superb Byzantine mosaics, reflects the twilight of the Roman Empire and the beginning of the Middle Ages. As the capital of the Western Roman Empire in its last days, then of the occidental provinces of the Byzantine Empire, it offered a refuge of luxury and splendor, a return to antique civilization rising above the relentless seas of barbarism.
