Pulp History Mobile

Assigned as a project in Visiting Assistant Professor in Printmaking Kaleena Stasiak’s Screen Printing class, Pulp History Mobile seeks to bring to light events in Mobile’s history that aren’t always given attention. This assignment was inspired by the Paper Monuments project in New Orleans, a team of designers and artists dedicated to representing the voices of people who aren’t always commemorated in public memorials. Students chose a variety of topics, such as the lynching of Michael Donald, the Crichton Leprechaun, the last known slave ship, the Old Spanish Trail and Mobile’s hockey team, to commemorate in their screen-printed posters.

The content and the creators of the posters reflect the diverse population of the University of South Alabama and their collective vision of Mobile.

The exhibit will be on display at the Archaeology through August 25, 2020.
