INTRODUCTION



During this project, I had the most fun designing Arsenal News 2020, an homage to a bi-weekly publication produced by the workers of the Watertown Arsenal that lasted 23 years. My 12-page interpretation of this newspaper consists of a non-linear visual history with recreated headlines. Some of the events featured are the 1911 worker's strike against Taylorism, the expansion of the campus during WWII, the 1961 peace walk organized by Brandeis and Harvard students, and the news about biotech companies moving into the area.

It is distributed at the gallery and concurrently in various locations at the Arsenal Yards and Mall and the Watertown Public Library.

This exhibition and artist’s publication was generously supported by a Daynard Grant from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, a Faculty Research Grant and a Tisch Faculty Fellowship from Tufts University.
