Augusta Savage: Renaissance Woman
Artist Augusta Savage (1892–1962) overcame poverty, racism, and sexual discrimination to become one of America's most influential 20th-century artists. Her sculptures celebrate African American culture, and her work as an arts educator, activist, and Harlem Renaissance leader catalyzed social change. This exhibition explores Savage's lasting legacy through her own work and that of the younger artists she inspired, including Jacob Lawrence (1917–2000), Gwendolyn Knight (1913–2005), and Norman Lewis (1901–1979). Through more than 50 works of art and archival materials, it illuminates Savage's artistic vision, as well as her profound impact on her students and her community. Organized by the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and coordinated at New-York Historical by Wendy N. E. Ikemoto, associate curator of American art.
Venue: New-York Historical Society
