Tonight at 5PM, UMCA hosts an opening reception to celebrate Mirror Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar. Alison Saar is known not only for her powerful sculptures; she is also a master of the art of printmaking. In both forms, she employs a personal vocabulary informed by history, race, and mythology. Her influences range from ancient Europe, Africa, and American folk art.

Prints and sculptures by the artist Alison Saar. Saar’s works narrate stories of the African American experience, moving effortlessly from the personal to the political. In many of her works, she charts the tragic history of slavery in America, but her figures symbolize defiance and strength.
