Miracles and Glory Abound explores the power of stories through Vanessa German’s assembled sculptures. The exhibition drew from both the visual and emotional concepts of the iconic painting, Washington Crossing the Delaware (currently on view in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art) by Emanuel Leutze. German uses what she terms “power figures” to imitate Leutze’s composition and create a conversation about public memory and the rewriting of history through the lens of privilege.
