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.

Freedom Fund Poster Auction
This piece was inspired by Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution will not be Televised”, and artwork by Andrea Pippins. The background is supposed to be white noise, which plays off part of the song’s title (‘will not be televised’), and the TV is broadcasting a family that is being shot at by a group of pigs, which also plays off some lyrics in the song (‘there will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers in that instant replay’). I decided to make this piece black and white to capture the “darkness” of the imagery that the TV creates.
