It was Black Friday, the traditional post Thanksgiving shopping day.
The yearly event certainly turned out to be a special day at the DeYoung Museum in Golden Gate Park.
I first saw this painting, The Flag is Bleeding by Ruth Ringgold on November 8, 2019 at the DeYoung members only showing of ‘Soul of a Nation.’
The next day progressive Chesa Boudin was declared winner in the San Francisco District Attorney election.
I posted a blog about the ‘Soul of a Nation’ and used the painting.
In the last three years I have displayed it several times on my Blog to illustrate the volatile political and racist history of America.
It is arguably my favorite piece I have EVER viewed at the DeYoung Museum.
Sunday is the last day of the Faith Ringgold exhibit.
The Flag is Bleeding is a lead painting of the Exhibit.
We purchased a beautifully framed print for a very fair price which includes a further discount Liz receives as a longtime member of the DeYoung Museum. Our purchase is now affixed with a RED DOT waiting to be specially wrapped prior to its journey to our home.
The curator will package it and I will pick it up next Tuesday after the v World Cup match.
