Stephanie Weiner is an activist and artist from Chicago. She has focused on peace and justice silkscreen items at social justice events and through her online and Pilsen store called The Revolutionary Lemonade Stand. Her hand screened playful movement swag have found their way into many picket lines as well as kindergarden classrooms.
Her more recent prints developed through Hyde Park Art Center’s Printing for the People classes as well as a 2018 Penland printing class focus on the issues of wrongful convictions. This series has been designed with and for the families and exonerees that they are about. In fact, one of the posters is an actual collaboration with an artist who has been incarcerated for 21 years for a crime he did not commit.
