About the Exhibition
This first national retrospective celebrates one of America's most prominent visionary artists. Artist Reverend Wagner and his autobiographical art provides rich visual testimony to a life begun amidst dire poverty to sharecroppers in the South, to his final attainment of spiritual peace, filled with a love for all humanity. Curated from 50+ Wagner masterpieces gifted to the museum by Gene and Linda Kangas, this show will also include two of Reverend Wagner's largest works, donated to AVAM's permanent collection ten years ago by Pat Handal.
