Pulp History Mobile
Assigned as a project in Visiting Assistant Professor in Printmaking Kaleena Stasiak’s Screen Printing class, Pulp History seeks to shed light on events in Mobile’s history that aren’t always given attention using informative screen-printed posters. This assignment was inspired by the Paper Monuments project in New Orleans, which tasked a team of designers and artists with representing the voices of people who are rarely commemorated in public memorials. For Pulp History, students chose a variety of topics, such as the lynching of Michael Donald, the Crichton Leprechaun, the last known slave ship, and Mobile’s hockey team, to commemorate in their screen-printed posters. The content and creators of the posters reflect the diverse population of the University of South Alabama and their collective vision of Mobile.
The exhibit will be on display at the Archaeology Museum through August 25, 2020.
