Today we celebrate the birthday of artist Faith Ringgold, who often honored the contributions of African American women and their traditions in her work. This sunny picture includes images of Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks, among others. She also added a surprising artist to the far right. Can you guess who?“The Sunflower Quilting Bee at Arles,” 1996 

It’s still sunflower time at the Garden, though they are winding down and providing important food for the birds that are beginning their winter migrations. And so, I just had to reblog this wonderful painting celebrating the sunflower! ~AR

Beautiful profile of the Garden’s own Annie Novak from the Urban Outfitters blog. One of the many hats Annie wears is Assistant Manager of the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden at NYBG, along with co-founder of the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Brooklyn, and founder and director of Growing Chefs. Whatever hat she’s wearing, we think she’s fabulous!
