The Dixon Gallery and Gardens is excited to announce that church bulletins will serve as a free pass for visitors and their families during the entire run of Ashe to Amen: African Americans and Biblical Imagery. The remarkable wealth and breadth of African American artists’ interpretations of Biblical stories and traditions in historic and contemporary is on view at the Dixon now through January 5, 2014.
“We are eager to welcome the many congregations of Memphis to this powerful show at the Dixon,” said Dixon Director Kevin Sharp.
Ashe to Amen: African Americans and Biblical Imagery is organized by the Museum of Biblical Art in New York and investigates the ever shifting intersections of aesthetics and belief. Themes that recur throughout Ashe to Amen include creation, revelation, faith, liberation, and identity.
