Moses Sun Window Installation at Bethany Pres – “Diaspora in Seven Movements”
“Diaspora in Seven Movements,” by Moses Sun, is an installation of seven stained glass-like windows representing the multiple facets of the African-American Diaspora. Each window evokes the myriad contributions of African Americans in art, engineering, music, medicine, dance, technology, and other facets of American culture. It uses dynamic lines, shapes, and composition to invite the viewer to join a celebration of Black Joy. The colors convey a connection to Africa and the African American Diasporas of Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Egypt, to name but a few. Through “Diaspora in Seven Movements,” the artist hopes to inspire a deeper investigation into the history and contributions made by Black people.
