About

Vanessa German is a multi-disciplinary artist and founder of Love Front Porch and ARThouse, a community arts initiative for the historic African American neighborhood of Pittsburgh. This exhibition features her "power figures," which are rooted in spirituality and ritual. In creating her art, she is actively involved with the community, using found objects that are brought to her or involving youth and adults in making her sculptures. In Miracles and Glory Abound she creates a modern version of Emanuel Leutze's iconic painting Washington Crossing the Delaware to address contemporary issues of racism, nationalism and the mythologization of history. 

This exhibition is organized by the Flint Institute of the Arts in cooperation with the Figge Art Museum and the Bates Museum of Art in Lewiston, Maine.
