Contemporary at Blue Star’s MOSAIC Student Artist Program artists have been selected for an exhibition presented by Axis Gallery in Sacramento, California. Opening on January 9, 2021 and on view through January 21, 2021, Posterworks is an exploration of traditional poster art and design, which has long been a part of modern life throughout politics, culture, and diverse industries. Posters continue to be a common printed medium for contemporary graphic artists and activists. For Posterworks, MOSAIC student artists present compelling graphic designs that capture this unique moment in time in the midst of a global pandemic.
The artworks presented in this exhibition are a reflection on current events and the devastation the COVID-19 virus has had on our communities and personal lives. As our lives are disrupted and the pandemic takes an unprecedented toll on our mental health, these brave student artists use posters to comment on the issues affecting their lives and the communities they inhabit.
Participating MOSAIC Student Artists:
Johanna Elizondo Cerda
Kaitlyn De La Garza
Angélica Kercado Mojica
