Shapes and bold color are a hallmark of African American artists, Romare Bearden (1911-1988) and Faith Ringgold (born 1930). Bearden’s collage and Ringgold’s fiber art illustrate many books for youth and adults found in our libraries.

In honor of Black History Month, two Sunday afternoons in February will be devoted to exploring their iconic art. Material will be available for children 12 and younger to recreate, reinterpret or get inspired by the masterworks: The Block by Romare Bearden and Flag Story Quilt by Faith Ringgold. Films featuring both artists will be on view as well as posters and books.

Learn more about and view the art of these two chroniclers of the African American Experience with the following:

Do you have a dream display

For Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Bellevue Library Children's Room asked: 

Do you have a dream?

Many of you responded in the affirmative! Yes, you have dreams - and they are as big as the sky and just as full of hope.

We want to thank all of those who participated in our T-shirt making and encourage all of you to keep dreaming in the future.
