Join ArtTable for a mid-summer gathering and tour of Betye Saar: Keepin' It Clean, led by curator Holly Jerger.

This solo exhibition of seminal contemporary artist Betye Saar features the artist’s series of washboard assemblage sculptures—an ongoing body of work Saar started in the late 1990s. 
The washboard is a potent object for Saar, a reference she uses to examine the intersection of race, class, and labor. Saar has shaped the development of assemblage art in the United States, and the washboard pieces demonstrate Saar’s ongoing commitment to illuminate the social and political concerns of our time. To give deeper context to the washboard assemblages, two related tableaux and a selection of washboards from Saar’s personal collection are included in the exhibition.

The tour begins at 2:00 pm; join us
afterward for hosted light fare and beverages at the museum.

Thank you to Holly Jerger for hosting and Stacie Martinez for organizing this event.

We would like to thank our generous sponsor for their support
