This is an invitation to all those printmakers and print lovers in the region who knew or were influenced by Grant Arnold's work as a printer and printmaker. Or perhaps you love hearing stories about artists and artmakers. We want to capture your stories on tape to add them to the Grant Arnold collection at SUNY Oswego.

Presenting SCOTTSBORO LIMITED by Langston Hughes
Wednesday, March 27 2-4 PM
Speaker: Dr. Patricia Clark, English Dept., SUNY Oswego

Join us in Tyler Art Gallery for a talk on Langston Hughes’ Scottsboro Limited, a book about the infamous case of the Scottsboro Boys that riveted the world in 1931. The book features poems and a play by Langston Hughes and illustrations by Prentiss Taylor. Taylor’s lithographs were printed by Grant Arnold, whose collection is housed and currently on exhibit in the gallery. Clark’s talk will give an overview of the Scottsboro case, Hughes’ involvement in the case and radical turn in his writing in the 1930s, and his collaboration with Taylor on the book and others during this period. After the talk, there will be time for discussion on projects that faculty, staff, and students might create or perform based on this limited edition in the College’s archives.

Support from Woodstock School of Art and ARTSwego
