The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) is proud to celebrate Black History Month with the presentation of It Takes a Village. This exhibition opens to the public with a free reception on Saturday, February 10 from 4-6pm. It Takes a Villagewill be on display at MOAH through Sunday, April 22, with multiple community engagement events throughout February and March.
It Takes a Village is comprised of six exhibitions addressing the dynamic of working as a community through the subjects of family, race, gender, and age. Featured in the Main Gallery of MOAH are the works of celebrated assemblage artist Betye Saar and her daughters, artists Alison Saar and Lezley Saar. The Saars’ work consists of two and three-dimensional assemblages, examining history and identity through the juxtaposition of objects, photographs, mixed media, and fabric.
It Takes a Village will also showcase the solo exhibitions of Wyatt Kenneth Coleman, Jane Szabo, and Richard S. Chow, with site-specific installations by artists Lisa Bartleson and Scott Yoell.
