HISTORICAL IMPRINT: Printmaker Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr. is displaying his series Fourteen Quotes from Rosa Louise Parks, Civil Rights Activist in the lobby of Olin Library throughout March. The exhibit is in honor of Women’s History month. Each print is multilayered and unique.

Kennedy is a highly regarded letterpress printer and builder of artists’ books, dedicated both to creating socially conscious art focusing on African-American culture and to using art as social activism. He has given several talks and residencies at Wesleyan.
Friends of the Wesleyan Library board member Jennifer Thom Hadley, library assistant for Scores & Recordings and the World Music Archives, helped coordinate Kennedy's exhibit. The Friends of the Wesleyan Library organization is sponsoring the exhibit.

Kennedy will return to Wesleyan from 6 to 8 p.m. April 22 and sell other prints from his collections. No two prints are alike. The event will take place in Olin Library's Smith Reading Room and the public is welcome. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Library. (Photos by Olivia Bartlett)
