Thanks to Laura Hunt for another fabulous poster. The Re-Visioning Emory symposium, in case you missed it, is happening next Monday, April 8, at 4:30 in the Visual Arts Building. Keep an eye on our Symposium page for further updates. Right now, our biggest challenge is making sure all the provocative, challenging, and ever so eminent speakers can fit into one evening program.
Emory student Kwame Phillips delivers the headline news:
In honor of Founders Day (Feb. 6) and the culmination of Campaign Emory, some pointed graphics:
These flyers were all over campus by Wednesday evening, only to be torn down before 9 the next morning. Imagination, as we know, requires constant sanitation.
* Wagner’s annual compensation was actually $1,172,397 in 2010, making him the 22nd highest paid college president in the U.S. The Chronicle’s breakdown of Wagner’s income is available to subscribers only.)
The campus has been awash in posters and morbid props lately.
The white flyers show the Emory logo cut with scissors and dripping blood, and the word “Arts” in Arts and Sciences has been slashed out of the poster.
The rainbow thunderbolt poster announces a protest of Chick-Fil-A, a fast food chain with a history of sponsoring anti-gay organizations, and which operates a franchise on campus.
The Modern Languages Building brings the pain:
Finally, a call to artists and graphic designers: The Student Re-visioning Committee is looking for a new iconic image. The first “Reject the Cuts” flyer was intended to bring disparate departments together, but the focus of activism has shifted. Furthermore, the original woodcut carries with it the legacy of colonial America and was mobilized on both sides of the Civil War; one student describes it as a little Tea Partyish.
Not surprisingly, since they gave us that wonderful FIST poster a while back, the good people at the Visual Scholarship Initiative have designed a fabulous poster for next Wednesday’s Halloween-themed protest.
It’s taking place at 1:45 p.m. They have the gory makeup; you just need to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Here’s the Facebook event. Oh, and this zombie walk is separate from another zombie walk earlier the same day, which is part of the zombie ethics conference.
