The NYC Art Teachers Association invites you the NY Historical Society to tour the exhibition Betye Saar: Keepin' It Clean and explore how Saar, a key figure of the Black Arts Movement and feminist art movement of the 1960-70s, combines both art and artifact to turn derogatory imagery into symbols of strength and perseverance that confront racism in American society. The tour will be followed by a hands-on workshop inspired by Saar's assemblages, where participants will be invited to create their own assemblage collages that address a social or political issue of importance to them. See More about the exhibit HERE.
