This summer eight Detroit arts organizations offered nine weeks of workshop to nearly 200 Detroit youth – introducing them to Brazilian popular art (with themes of heroes and superheroes) and offering instruction in poetry and printmaking. Young artists then used poetry and prints to tell their own stories and ideas. This exhibition includes prints and poems by artists in Detroit and Brazil.
This exhibition is in conjunction with the Mid-America Print Council Conference Print City Detroit 2014.
