In Concert: Bonita Wagner Johnson
Free as part of Dominion Family Fun Day
Join us for an afternoon gospel performance by Bonita Wagner Johnson, daughter of artist Reverend Albert Wagner, whose works are currently on view in the exhibition Realization is Better than Anticipation. Wagner Johnson is a spirited performer, with a powerful, captivating voice. She starting singing at the age of 3, and, at the age of 60, has just finished recording her first album at the Oberlin College Conservatory. This concert will be a preview of the forthcoming release, including original songs and renditions of classics. Before the performance, Wagner Johnson will talk with artist Johnny Coleman, Department Co-Chair and Professor of Studio Art and African American Studies at Oberlin College. Coleman was a long-time friend of Reverend Albert Wagner, and has worked closely with Wagner Johnson to produce her album.
