Join us the evening of September 5th to celebrate the completion of our summer-long mural project by Edo Rosenblith, Janie Bootsie Stamm, Yowshien Kuo, and WORK/PLAY! Complimentary refreshments will be provided and this event is free and open to the public.
Edo Rosenblith was born in Tel Aviv, Israel but has spent most of his life in the United States. Rosenblith received his BFA in painting in 2011 at the Rhode Island School of Design and his
MFA in Visual Art at Washington University-St. Louis in 2017. Edo is a compulsive draftsman who works in a verity of mediums: murals, painting, drawing, printmaking, and book arts.
Throughout these methods of image making, Edo implements a cartoon vernacular as a way to reexamine both personal and historical narratives of trauma.

Kevin received a BFA in Graphic Communication from the University of Missouri St. Louis and currently enrolled at Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, Washington University in St. Louis earning his MFA. Danielle is a conceptual artist, writer, and educator. Together, they combine illustration, minimal contemporary design along with experimental printmaking techniques into their art practice. With their use of design and printmaking, the collaborative duo has expanded their practice to textile arts, site-specific installation, publications and bookmaking to deliver an acerbic dose of revelation to inspire audiences and trigger experiences. They continuously experiment with new techniques, seeking to push beyond the perceived boundaries of art, design and printmaking.
