It takes a lot to get me to go to New Jersey, but an exhibit featuring Beatles’ memorial inspired by 1960’s-era Beatlemania ? I’m there! Through June 25th, 2023, the Grammy Museum Experience at Prudential Center is hosting Ladies and Gentlemen…The Beatles! Is it worth a trip from Manhattan to Newark, on the PATH train? Oh, yeah.

Ringgold’s primary collaborator was her own mother, the fashion designer and dress maker Willi Posey. Mrs. Jones and Family (1973, also known as Mrs. Jones, Andrew, Barbara, and Faith) was created with Posey, who designed and sewed garments for many of Ringgold‘s mask sculptures throughout the 1970s.
