On view in the Davison Lobby through February 26, 2021
Amos Kennedy Jr. is a Detroit-based letterpress printer who creates prints, posters and postcards from handset wood and metal type, oil-based inks, and eco-friendly and affordable chipboard. He speaks directly to his viewers with a variety of proverbs and statements on art, politics, race relations, and social justice.
Amos is Park School’s 2021 Diana Lee Fox Resident Artist. Amos is scheduled to join us for a virtual residency on March 3, 2021 where he will meet with students from all three divisions. In this unique year we are sharing reproductions of Amos Kennedy’s posters outside along the wooded story walk, so that everyone in the community might see his work. The wooded walk can be entered at the bridge near Kelly Field, at the far side of the main parking lot. There are 20 display panels to view along the path. The original posters are installed in the Davison Lobby, through February 26, 2021.
