Amos Kennedy at KSU Downtown Gallery
In 2015, Kennedy was honored as a United States Artists Glasgow Fellow in Crafts. In 2012, he was the subject of the documentary "Proceed and Be Bold!" Kennedy currently owns and operates a print studio in Detroit, MI. Kennedy’s work was recently featured in the New York Times Magazine article “How the Black Vote Became a Monolith” by Theodore R. Johnson.
The Mid America Print Council (MAPC) has given Kennedy their outstanding printmaker award for 2020. This exhibit has been coordinated in support of that award and in conjunction with the MAPC conference “Power of Print: Resistance and Revolution” that was to be hosted this October but has been delayed until October 2022 due to COVID-19. A remote symposium is being planned for this year that includes discussions, demonstrations and panels, along with in-person and online exhibitions.
The KSU Downtown Gallery is located at 141 East Main Street in Kent, Ohio.
Gallery Hours: Monday -Thursday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm (10-11 reserved for our at-risk guests, please)
