Community Art Project: Amos Kennedy Jr.

UICA Members: Free
Public: Free with gallery admission

Amos Kennedy Jr. is creating a large-scale site-specific installation for UICA’s Breaching the Margins exhibition and the Grand Rapids community is invited to contribute. Kennedy will be onsite demonstrating letterpress techniques with original designs that quote local businesses and organizations, who are making a concerted effort to serve marginalized and underrepresented groups. Workshop participants will print letterpress posters from these designs and have the option to include their prints in Kennedy’s installation.

About the artist: Amos Kennedy Jr. is an internationally known printer best recognized for his boldly colored letterpress designs expressing social and political commentary. He currently operates out of his letterpress printing studio Kennedy Prints! in Detroit, Michigan, and offers workshops and lectures worldwide.

The Breaching the Margins Community Art Project is supported by The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
