The Full Story
The visual and literary arts magazine is an instant connection to a community of writers, poets, and artists, connecting academics to the lives and careers we hope to pursue.
This “real life experience” is what will lead us to two or three publications each year. Though the print edition only comes out in print twice a year, it takes a year’s worth of work, both by the marketing teams and by the creativity of the Global College community to organize and make the print edition.
A tribute to Basquiat
The name SAMO is a reference to graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and his tag SAMO, meaning Same Old. Basquiat's art focused on dichotomies such as wealth versus poverty, integration versus segregation, and inner versus outer experience. He appropriated poetry, drawing, and painting, and married text and image, abstraction, figuration, and historical information mixed with contemporary critique.
