Rebellion and Grace: The Beginnings

Rebellion and Grace: The Beginnings

A retrospective exhibition of poster work by The Graphic Workshop is currently on view in the President’s Gallery.  Here’s the story of how this artists’ collective began at MassArt in response to the war in Vietnam and the killing of four students at Kent State in Ohio, two students at Jackson State in Mississippi, and six young men protesting in Augusta, Georgia.
