With recent racial tensions in the media because of the unjust killing of African-Americans by police officers and lay people, it is important for me to talk about these tragic events as they have affected me, my family, and my community.  In today’s media, there has been a surge of negative images that continues to tell the story that African Americans are not beautiful, are not intelligent, and are not important.  These images are very similar to the negative imagery of the Jim Crow era. 

African-Americans play a never-ending game to overcome these discouraging challenges.  In +/- (a board game and book object) an African American family navigates through the perils of negative imagery in the media.  Based on the events that occur in the news, on social media, and pop culture, the player will move forward and backwards throughout their journey.  The goal of +/- is to understand and accept the reality of how negative images and stereotypes impact the lives of African-American every day.

The game board is printed with silkscreen and Sintra. The textile prints on the board are inspired by traditional African textiles.  The African-American dolls are printed with silkscreen.

An Exquisite Future

An Exquisite Future

2014
Kerry McAleer-Keeler: "An Exquisite Future was designed and produced by the students in Fall 2014 under the guidance of instructor Sarah McDermott. In the book, the group explores the implications of a future with a reduced population of honeybees. A vital pollinator of many types of food plants for humans and animals, honeybees are in danger of disappearing because of colony collapse disorder. The artists used this phenomenon as a starting point for contemplating the future. Each artist responded to the preceding vision, building on what came before and using humor while considering potential difficulties."

Techniques: letterpress, screenprint, linoleum relief, Sintra plate carving. Printed on Rives Heavyweight Text. Bound as an accordion with a removable spine and sewn inserts. Background images of native pollinators digitally printed on Canson Mi-Tientes. Eurostyles and Aleo typefaces printed letterpress from polymer plates. Cover sheets of cotton and abaca made by hand at the Corcoran. Signed by the participants (Susanne Allen; Sarah Matthews; Amy Nichols; Sarah Denslow: Krista Sharp; Julie Sheah).

The American Dream

The American Dream

American Dream is a flag book created by Sarah Matthews during her Spring 2014 semester at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C. Sarah was inspired by an image of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. pulling up a burned cross from his front lawn with his young son standing next to him. It was a chilling image that made her want to capture what Dr. King’s life was like during that time with his family. The poem is a culmination of respect and admiration for Dr. King’s work and how it perpetuates into the lives of African-American people today.
