Kansas People’s History Project at PSU

Located on the Second Floor, Art Connectors Community Gallery is a new exhibit, the Kansas People’s History Project.  Students in professor Emi Gennis’s typography class worked all semester on poster designs which were displayed along side research material and preliminary sketches. The exhibition is set to show through April 9th.

Kansas has remarkable stories, but many of them are not widely known or taught in our schools. The Kansas People’s History Project (KPHP) will begin to address this gap by making history present and visible in our everyday lives. Inspired by Howard Zinn’s groundbreaking book “A People’s History of United States” which examined history “from the bottom up,” the KPHP will focus on the creation of a series of screen printed broadsides with text narratives, a comprehensive website, and an exhibition that shine a light on lesser known but greatly influential figures and events from Kansas’s past.
