Pacita Abad : 
I Thought the Streets Were Paved with Gold
1000 Piece Puzzle

Art & Fable Puzzles
18.9 x 26.7 inches

Selected on the occasion of Pacita Abad's first-ever retrospective, this 1000 piece puzzle of Abad's "I Thought the Streets were Paved with Gold" includes a high quality print of the artwork, a box top stand, and a resealable bag. 

Over the course of her career, Abad made an exuberant, wide-ranging body of work that was ahead of its time in promoting a transcultural worldview. Drawing on her knowledge of global fiber traditions, Abad innovated a hybrid art form that she called “trapunto” painting (from the Italian word trapungere, “to embroider”).

Abad's “I Thought the Streets Were Paved with Gold”, the work reproduced in this puzzle, is a great example of how Abad expresses the experience of immigrant populations throughout her varied practice.
