LA-based artist Alison Saar is perhaps best known as a sculptor who draws inspiration from ancient European, African and American folk art but is resolutely contemporary in her approach. Mirror, Mirror: The Prints of Alison Saar showcases five of Saar’s sculptures as well as about 50 of her prints, which maintain consistency of theme and technique despite an eclectic use of media. That mix can include anything from discarded chair backs and ceiling tin to collages of rags and handkerchiefs. While you visit the glowing crimson cube on WSU’s campus to see Saar’s show, be sure to also check out the Black Lives Matter Artist Grant Exhibition, featuring 20 Washington artists using their work to address social justice and systemic racism.
