WASHINGTON—The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) presents Alison Saar In Print, on view June 10–Oct. 2, 2016. Inspired by her sculptural practice, Alison Saar (b. 1956, Los Angeles) uses dynamic printmaking techniques characterized by bold forms and striking colors to explore themes of feminine, racial, and cultural identity. NMWA’s collection includes an array of Saar’s prints from throughout her career. This focus exhibition of 16 works samples the museum’s Saar holdings and also features related sculptures and prints from private collections.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts: "Alison Saar In Print," (June 10–Oct. 2, 2016); 1250 New York Ave NW Washington, D.C.; (202)783-5000; nmwa.org
