Mirror, Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar Reflection Night

We invite students, faculty, staff and community members to join in a discussion about Mirror, Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation in observance of International Women’s Day 2022. Participants will reflect on the ways in which Alison Saar’s work has influenced coursework, creative practice, and individual perspectives. Please email Kristin Becker, Education Coordinator, if you would like to RSVP to speak to the group for five minutes about your experience with Mirror, Mirror: kristin.carlson@wsu.edu. All are welcome to attend, listen and join the discussion informally without RSVP.

American artist Alison Saar is known not only for her powerful sculptures—she is also a master of the art of printmaking. In both forms, she employs a personal vocabulary informed by history, race, and mythology. Her influences range from ancient Europe, Africa, and American folk art. Saar’s works narrate stories of the African American experience, moving effortlessly from the personal to the political. In many of her works, she charts the tragic history of slavery in America, but her figures symbolize defiance and strength. Other recurring images are informed by jazz, romance, and desire. Mirror, Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation—featuring nearly 50 prints and five sculptures by the Los Angeles–based artist—is on view at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art through March 12, 2022.

This program is being offered in collaboration with the Women*s Center WSU, the International Center WSU, Undocumented Initiatives WSU, the Graduate and Professional Student Association, and other campus partners who are working to raise awareness of International Women’s Day 2022.
