The exhibition "Betye Saar: Call and Response" looks at the relationship between found objects, sketches the artist then makes in small sketchbooks--which Saar has made throughout her career--and finished works.

About the Artist
Betye Saar (b. 1926, Los Angeles) is one of the most talented artists of her generation. She has only recently garnered the attention her talents deserve, however, no doubt largely because she is a black woman who came of age in the 1960s outside of New York City.
