  • Harlem Renaissance sculptor Augusta Savage passed away #onthisday in 1962.⁣
⁣
Savage was a well-known sculptor and community art organizer in the 1930s, but her path to the Harlem art scene was not an easy one.⁣ When Savage was a little girl growing up in Florida, her very conservative Methodist minister father was fervently against her being an artist. He was of the school that didn’t believe in graven images and thought his little girl’s clay figurines were sinful. Nothing sends you straight to hell quite like ceramic puppies. But he was very serious about his daughter giving up her interest in art to the point that, as Savage recalls, he “almost whipped all the art out of me.” Almost…⁣
⁣
Her talent and her drive carried her through much adversity. She was widowed twice and, throughout her life, constantly denied opportunities purely because she was Black. She studied and worked through it all, even while taking care of her family and struggling to make ends meet. Many of her most wonderful sculptures she made using clay or plaster because she simply could not afford bronze. But in spite of all of this, her sculptures embodying the feelings of what it’s like for African Americans in America have made it into prestigious museums, there is a school of visual arts named after her in Baltimore, Maryland, there's a Community Center named after her in her birthplace, and she was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame. Take that!⁣
