Unseen Cville


University of Virginia and Virginia Humanities


The University of Virginia and Virginia Humanities brought the authors of The Fire This Time, a reaction to Jame's Baldwin's The Fire Next Time to Charlottesville for the 2018 Festival of the Book. Leading up to their visit, they pressure-washed quotes from the book off the sidewalks around town, creating a large-scale, temporary art installation. I was asked to write and design flyers and posters about the project, advertising the Book Fest event. In addition, I made 80 letterpress prints from the authors to be handed out at the event. A set of these prints are now in the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
