Join the Mattatuck Museum for the second in a four-part series and Experience Art & History @ The MATT. This lecture, Memory Through Art, on Friday, April 25, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. is presented by Mattatuck Museum Curator, Dr. Cynthia Roznoy.

Dr. Roznoy will give participants an in-depth look at works in the exhibition, Stories and Journeys: The Art of Faith Ringgold and Aminah Robinson. Dr. Roznoy will explore the creative process and the mythologies of identity of these extraordinary African American artists.

Ringgold and Robinson have been close friends since meeting in 1988 and their apparent commonalities inspired the pairing. They are African-American, feminists, both making art associated with women’s work, and each uses story and the narrative form. This exhibition, on view through June 8, 2014, of more than thirty works focuses on the most recent work of these women, though some earlier pieces are included to demonstrate the variety of each artist’s stylistic and subject variety. It has been organized in conjunction with the ACA Galleries, New York and is generously supported by The Coby Foundation.
