      Vanessa German: In a Fit of Glory

      VANESSA GERMAN: IN A FIT OF GLORY EXHIBITION DATES: January 11 – April 5, 2020 Vanessa German is an American sculptor, painter, writer, activist, performer and poet based in Pittsburgh. As a self-described citizen artist, German explores the power of art and love as a transformative force in the dynamic cultural ecosystem of communities and neighborhoods. Her intricate mixed-media sculptures combine doll parts, antique tins, cowrie shells, household objects, and African beads. With her three-dimensional collages German reclaims objects and words that symbolize the oppression of African Americans for generations, creating serene, if surreal, figures that call to mind religious icons, Congolese minkisi sculpture and folk art traditions. Her work is found in numerous permanent collections. The museum is planning to bring Vanessa German to Amarillo at the end of March. More details coming soon.
