Somehow the world hasn't healed itself while we were on break fools.
We can't ignore it and so we must devour it, choke and be sick... and then we must make prints about it, recalling that Picasso said, "art is is not made to decorate apartments. It's an offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy."
This semester we continue to explore the work of printmakers who used the poison of the world around them to make prints steeped in artistic social responsibility.
And for this week:
