This exhibit is the outcome of UMD Assistant Professor Terresa Hardaway’s assignment “The Movement Imprinted: Music of the Revolution,” in which Hardaway asks her students to create pieces based on a song about the African-American experience, and she specified that their design should emulate an African-American graphic designer. Along with the posters, the winning bid will also receive a designed booklet that details information about the song, musician, designer, and the student's progress.

Get Up Stand Up by Lexi Craven 18 X 24 Poster

This auction has been sold to bethholst at $15.00 USD.

Get Up Stand Up was inspired by the song Get Up Stand Up, written by Bob Marley and the Wailers in 1973. The song was about the oppression of Rastafarianism in Jamaica. The song encourages people to stand up and fight for their rights. This piece features a Jamaican flag in the shape of Jamaica, breaking off into small pieces. The stippling in this piece is reminiscent of designer Bill Howell’s work for Pamoja and Black Theatre.
