Event Details


On March 31, 2016 at 6 p.m., Vanessa German, a sculptor, actress, performer and educator will speak at the Jepson Center. Her exhibition currently at the Jepson Center (until September 2016) examines how today’s artists are informed by the past, innovate with materials old and new, and engage deeply with issues relevant to our communities. Vanessa German creates compelling works that invoke the power to protect children endangered by circumstance and location. Her “power figures” feature accumulations of found objects that decorate black figures she constructs from dolls and found objects, and imbues with beauty and magic. She has also pioneered a performance style called Spoken Word opera.

This event is free to members or with museum admission ($12) by advance ticketing only. For more information about the exhibition, click here, and for more information about tickets, email tickets@telfair.org or call the Jepson Center at (912) 790-8800.
