Miami Art Museum is celebrating the debut of Faith Ringgold’s solo exhibition American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s with a special performance by Miami Bobby Stringer, in cooperation with Overtown Music Project. The opening event will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2011, from 6-9pm – all you art enthusiasts out there mark your calendars!  Ringgold’s body of work is an artistic exploration of humanity, race, gender and class made in conversation with the social controversies of the 1960s.

The exhibition also marks MAM Director Thom Collins’ curatorial debut in Miami, and is MAM’s featured presentation for Miami Art Week and Art Basel Miami Beach. The exhibition will be up through January 1, 2012. Don’t miss this important cultural event.
