A Printmaker Makes His Mark On Issues Of Art And Race
Printing was not the first career choice for Amos Kennedy. He was 40 when he left his lucrative job as a programmer at AT&T to try his hand as being what he calls “a humble negro printer.” From his recently relocated workshop in Detroit, Amos cranks out posters, pamphlets, postcards and books by hand. His work provokes questions about art, race, and social inequality.
Amos is the subject of a documentary film, “Proceed and Be Bold,” screening tonight at Dartmouth’s Hood Auditorium and an exhibit of his work closes today.
