Forever

Bisa Butler creates quilted portraits of both everyday and notable African Americans, working from images she finds in historic archives. She uses color to communicate the inner personalities of her subjects and employs a variety of fabrics to illustrate her constructed stories of their lives. Forever is a quilted portrait of actor, activist, and playwright Chadwick Boseman (1976–2020). Butler’s works are in the collections of many museums across the United States, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Forever is included in the exhibition Black American Portraits currently at LACMA until April 17, 2022.

A portion of the sales will be given to the Chadwick Boseman Foundation for the Arts.
