About this artwork

Sonia Sheridan, who taught studio arts at SAIC beginning in 1960, organized the influential Generative Systems program. Providing undergraduate and graduate students a program “in synchronization with social and technological change,” Generative Systems functioned from 1970 to 1980, later reintegrating itself into a variety of SAIC programs: Sculpture; Film, Video, and New Media; and Printmedia. Three examples from the portfolio Screen Prints 1970 (the year of Generative Systems’s inception) showcase the breadth of Sheridan’s influence on the work of students and faculty.
