Florida Atlantic University’s John D. MacArthur Campus Library Gallery is hosting “Proceed and Be Bold!,” an exhibition of posters by Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., a letterpress artist who is known internationally for his controversial posters and book arts, through Tuesday, May 10, at 5353 Parkside Drive, Jupiter. 33458
Kennedy’s “Proceed and Be Bold!” exhibition rolls language and color into a visually engaging four-cornered and sometimes four-lettered package. His posters explore social, political and racial issues with quotes from such figures as Abolitionist Sojourner Truth and Civil Rights Icon Rosa Parks and such phrases as “Coffee Should Be Black as Hell, Strong as Death and Sweet as Love” and “Coffee Makes You Queer.’’
The exhibition is free and open to the public. The library’s hours are Sundays from 12:30 to 11 p.m.; Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, call 561-799-8530 or go to http://www.library.fau.edu/npb/npb.htm.
