In this episode of pine|copper|lime Miranda speaks with Tanekeya Word a Milwaukee based visual artist, printmaker and educator, whose work centers around Black geographies: exploring Afrofuturism, Black aesthetics, Black hair, Black identity, and Black girl/womanhood. Word is also the founder of Black Women of Print a society where black female printmakers can share space, intergenerational knowledge, stories, and community. If that wasn’t enough, Black Women of Print is also an educational resource for discovering historical black female printmakers currently overlooked in the printmaking canon. In this episode we talk education, arts funding, accessibility in printmaking, and future thinking.
