Thanks to the @thecoloredgirls1 for sharing their experiences in #politics and #activism and for @vvchambers for moderating such a thoughtful discussion earlier this week in our Great Hall. Donna Brazile, Yolanda Caraway, Leah Daughtry, and Minyon Moore, four of the most influential African American women in US who continue to work to move #civilrights and democracy forward, discussed their new book For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Politics and shared inspirational stories about some of the leaders who helped to shape their careers, such as #ShirleyChisolm, #BarbaraJordan, and #CorettaScottKing.

Catch internationally renowned artist, #architect, and #engineer Cecil Balmond OBE in the Great Hall on Thursday, November 29 at 6:30pm. Widely considered to be one of the most significant creators of his generation, Balmond transcends the conventional boundaries of discipline, working in the crossover between #art and #science. In this dynamic area, he has re-invented the very concept of space, transforming the meaning of geometry, form, and structure. This lecture is sponsored by The Steel Institute of New York with support from The Cooper Union’s The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture and Albert Nerken School of Engineering.

Today’s election day and the artist collective fierce pussy produced a special election poster for this year’s midterms. See it now as part of the 41 Cooper Gallery exhibition WE DISSENT… Design of the Women’s Movement in New York which showcases more than 150 years of feminist artifacts including engravings, posters, brochures, and more. fierce pussy is a collective of queer women artists that formed in New York City in 1991 through their immersion in AIDS activism during a decade of increasing political mobilization around gay rights. Low-tech and low-budget, the collective responded to the urgency of those years, using readily available resources like old typewriters, found photographs, and the printing supplies accessible in their day jobs. And remember to vote today. . . . #vote #wedissent #printedmatter #poster #fiercepussy #feministart #graphicdesign
