Betye SaarFrom Art Knowledge News:

Sacramento, CA – Los Angeles artist Betye Saar first emerged in the 1960s as an important artistic figure by addressing the African American experience in her work.

Throughout her long career, Saar has made art addressing contemporary issues, especially the legacy of race in America, aiming to both challenge and engage viewers.

In Betye Saar: Extending the Frozen Moment, on view at the Crocker Art Museum from January 27 – April 29, 2007, works spanning the breadth of her production reveal the development of her vision and message.

A sculptor, assemblagist and collagist, Saar has always embraced a diverse range of political, creative and spiritual influences – from the Civil Rights and feminist movements, to design, craft and a belief in personal destiny.
