The Newark Museum of Art
Poster Bisa Butler
Artist Bisa Butler tells stories–the African-American side of American life–through her stunning life-sized quilts. The vibrancy, dignity and immediacy of her subjects are especially remarkable when you consider no paint is used, but captured through the multi-layered medium of the quilt.
Standing at 9 feet high x 12 feet wide, The Warmth of Other Sons is loosely based on historic photographs of Black families that migrated from the South to the North looking for economic prosperity. The title is a reference to the critically acclaimed book by Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns, chronicling the Great Migration.
The Newark Museum of Art is honored to have this monumental work in its collection and pleased to share this reproduction with you.
