Zaire McPhearson, MFA EDA '20: A Fall From Grace

"A Fall From Grace" is a multimedia project by Zaire McPhearson, MFA EDA '20, that tells the story of single Black women and their children involved in a cult from the mid-1970s through the early 2000s. Told through the voices of now elderly women who were part of a Charismatic Movement known as "The Prayer Band," A Fall From Grace is a complex layering of stories that illustrates the lives of the remaining women who are willing to tell their stories and their long recovery back to their faith. McPhearson uses sculpture, stained glass, and photography to depict this journey.
