Fibers Tech and Printmaking Alumni Amy Cousins solo show at Illinois State University

Author: Anonymous

You Will Never Have the Comfort of Our Silence Again August 18 – October 8, 2017 Amy Cousins’ large-scale sculptures and installations are based on her research into rare protest ephemera, out-of-print feminist newspapers, and first-person accounts of radical queer histories.
