Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Linocuts by Meredith Stern

Linocuts Linocuts

On December 10, 1948, in the aftermath of the devastation of World War II, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a roadmap to guarantee the rights of every individual everywhere. The complete Declaration is comprised of a Preamble and 30 Articles. In honor of the 60th anniversary of this document, we are exhibiting 14 Articles in the form of illustrated prints by Meredith Stern. These contemporary prints are intended both to make people aware of this rights roadmap and to show its urgent relevance in our contemporary political moment.

Meredith Stern is an artist currently based in Providence, RI, and a member of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, a decentralized network of 30 artists committed to social, environmental, and political engagement. Stern created a total of 28 sets of these linocut prints in 2017, of which one is held in the Joseph A. Labadie Collection in the Special Collections Research Center.
