Printmaking has long been a form of addressing social and political themes. The history of printmaking and the distribution of prints as a form of dissent is well documented. Allow OLLI and Wolf-Prusan to explore for you how a select group of printmakers, driven by spiritual motivations and social engagement, created and distributed vivid prints to express their views and influence their contemporaries. Together we will examine the remarkable prints of four such artists: Goya, Kathe Kollowitz, Ben Shahn, and Sister Corita Kent. Each produced striking prints reflecting their reactions to events around them. The visual results of their work, art as spiritual resistance, are still worth our attention. Come open your eyes to them.
