While an interesting life story may make Winfred Rembert unusual, it is his art that makes him extraordinary.

Arrested during a civil rights march, Rembert learned how to do leather work while in prison. He continued to use the medium of leather, carving it and dying it, to express his bold images, mostly of life in his native Georgia.

The Muskegon Museum of Art will feature his work, including some never seen before, now through March 18.
