Images of Social Justice from the Segura Arts Studio illustrates the history of Segura Art Studio by highlighting its mission of working with underrepresented artists through their published artwork. As part of the University of Notre Dame, the studio plays an important role in contemporary printmaking with an initial focus on collaboration with artist-printmakers and on the technical aspects and aesthetics of various print processes. The initial focus has been expanded to include artists whose creative work has a strong political message. Segura is drawn to marginalized artists: women, African and Native Americans as well as Latino artists and the studio continue to emphasize the importance of collaborative practice as well as education and activism.
A special kick-off Summer Exhibition Celebration will be held at Turchin during the downtown Boone First Friday Art Crawl, Fri., July 7, with hours of operation extended through 10 p.m. for the occasion.
