Works by Susanne Wenger on View at the Carlos
Check out the Carlos Museum for Susanne Wenger's stunning screen prints that meld cultures and histories into breathtaking new work.
These prints and batik are syncretic compositions of oriki (praise poetry about Yoruba deities such as Obàtálá and Osun) and European mythology. The depictions are extensions of the Osun sacred grove, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which Wenger redesigned in the 1960s. Although Osun was a significant figure in Wenger’s work, Obàtálá, who is charged with forming every human being, ultimately influenced her the most.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes—trust us, we know. But Heights at Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
