Alison Saar turns things 'Topsy Turvy' at L.A. Louver
“Topsy Turvy,” an exhibition of new work by Scripps alumna and artist Alison Saar ’78, garnered high praise from the Los Angeles Times. In depicting Topsy, a slave girl character in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin, “Saar has brilliantly made and remade [her], restoring her innate power to make herself,” writes critic Christopher Knight in his review.
