Speak Up! Speak Out! Activism in Print Panel
Nothing is louder than print on paper
Through their print work, each of these artists expresses love of community and a vision for a more just world. How can we speak up and speak out? How can we join together without coming apart? Each artist will share from their body of work and take questions afterward.
