Augusta Savage

Augusta Savage built an art community in Harlem, New York during the Harlem Renaissance. She opened an art school and taught artists such as Jacob Lawrence when he was a young boy.

Augusta Savage sculpted works of art that brought people together such as The Harp a choir of African Americans standing or lifted up by a hand.

The church has a long history, in the black community, as being a safe space for blacks to gather and worship.

Augusta Savage incorporated that sense of community in her sculpture titled The Harp.
