Some Refused To Work In The Fields 1000 Pc Puzzle
Fun, functional art with a purpose.
This 1000 piece puzzle is created through a collaboration between a young Black woman in Brooklyn, NYC and a Virginia based Black artist, Ronald Jackson.
Ronald Jackson is an artist and painter who uses portraits and figurative works as a way of engaging the intimate stories and unique experiences of African Americans from the recent past. With faces often partially concealed behind masks, Jason suggests that there are stories to be discovered, unique experiences to be uncovered, and the presence of universal humanity demanding to be acknowledged.
Not just a cool puzzle, each sale supports both a rising artist and a micro-company getting started in a very complicated retail environment - which is why for the first time in many years, I've broken my "not made in China" rule.
Mandi had a contract with a US puzzle manufacturer signed but when covid hit she was too small to get production from them and was forced to move production, for now, to China. Her goal is to move production to the US within the next 2 years.
