Can Design Stop a War?

Can Design Stop a War?

Thursday, April 8, 2010 - 11:00pm

Featuring  Carol Wells, Executive Director & Mary Sutton, Program Director, Center for the Study of Political Graphics

Art inspires and empowers the disenfranchised. There has never been a viable movement for social change throughout the 20th and 21st centuries without the arts - including theater, poetry, music, posters - being central to that movement.  Political posters in particular are powerful living reminders to the struggles worldwide for peace and justice.

Join us for a powerful slide presentation and discussion from CSPG curators and collectors Carol Wells and Mary Sutton about the important role and impact political art has had in social movement building.  With more than 70,000 political posters, CSPG has the largest collection of post WWII human rights and protest posters in the United States.
