Overview

AVAM proudly hosts the first national retrospective of Reverend Albert Lee Wagner's autobiographical art. His “story pictures” tell the horrors of racism and prejudice that he had witnessed and experienced as a son of sharecroppers. The show title commemorates the transformative moment when house paint spilled on a floor board, forever changing an actively sinning Wagner as he prepared for his own 50th birthday. Transfixed by the scene of pooling paint, Wagner experienced a spiritual epiphany, forever ending his womanizing and kicking off an intense period of religious service and art making that would endure until his peaceful death at the age of 82.
