    Ashe to Amen: African Americans and Biblical Imagery investigates the intersections and crossroads of aesthetics and belief in African American art. For more than two centuries, the Bible has been a catalyst for this multicultural and initially disenfranchised artistic community and has been inspiring the creation of sacred, spiritual, and religious spaces and identity. The exhibition's title takes its name from praise terms commonly used in African and African American communities. "Ashe", a Yoruba word, refers to the creative power of an artist to make something happen. "Amen" is an affirmation meaning essentially "so be it". The visual continuum on display in Ashe to Amen presents the inventive, deeply personal, and ongoing interpretations of the Bible created by artists from the African American community.
