Litho-Literacy! Exhibition

Litho-Literacy Banner

This project began with an idea by Stephanie Hallam, Assistant Professor, Education Information Librarian, to collaborate with Associate Professor in Art + Design Hannah Sanders’s students in a project honoring 100 Years of the Newbery Medal 2022. Dr. Sanders created a project for her AR502 Lithography Printmaking courses wherein students each researched a book from the Newbery Award list and developed a hand drawn illustration incorporating their reflections and ideas about the book. Descriptions of each student’s impetus for choosing and creating their design are printed and displayed beside the prints and the covers of the books in the Kent Library Special Collections Cases on the 3rd Floor of Kent Library through the end of the semester.

Special thanks to Tyson Koenig, Associate Archivist in Special Collections & Archives, for his help in making this project happen.
