Artist Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. is a letterpress printer and bookbuilder based in Gordo, Alabama. At 40 years of age, Kennedy abandoned the traditional American Dream to follow his own. Unsatisfied with his comfortable, middle-class life, Amos traded in his computer for a printing press and his white collar for overalls. His letterpress work raises emotionally charged questions about race and individuality.
Check out this video of his work being installed in the front gallery and stop by to see it in person. Kennedy will give an INSIGHT Art Talk on October 19 and teach a Letterpress Workshop on October 20 as part of Print Week.
