Mark of Empowerment

Reception: Thursday, October 13, 5:00–7:30 pm

Exhibition curated by Roberto Torres Mata, presented as part of the 2022 Mid America Print Council Biennial Conference.

Resilience. Artists are granted the freedom to imagine a world that is logical and communal without restrictions. Having a powerful spirit of resistance has influenced and led to great thinkers, poets, and visionaries. The exhibition, Mark of Empowerment, honors the incredible legacies that inspire communities to stand up for their rights and freedoms. The power of print has not only changed the course of history, but has revolutionized the way people engage with their imagination. This exhibition reflects on how printmaking takes action to speak out with activism. The work challenges racism, sexism, environmental injustice, social inequalities, infringement upon civil rights, and colonialism.
