Mildred Beltré’s Slogans for the Revolution That Never Was is an ongoing series of text-based drawings and objects that re-word, abstract, and re-contextualize language borrowed from existing and original texts. Beltré is an associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History. The piece pictured is currently on loan to the Fleming Museum for RESIST! INSIST! PERSIST!, an exhibition exploring activist art. Conceived and curated by students in a fall 2018 museum studies course taught by Professor Kelley Helmstutler Di Dio, the exhibition includes works by Goya, Hogarth, Picasso, Kara Walker, Glenn Ligon, and the Guerilla Girls, among many others. It is on view through December 13.
