Tar Beach 2

The Fabric Workshop and Museum

This story quilt was written and created by African American artist Faith Ringgold. The pictures, patterns, and words in the center panel tell the story of Cassie, a young girl who has big dreams. Ringgold worked with master printers at the Fabric Workshop and Museum to silkscreen and hand sew this narrative fabric artwork.
