The tradition of political posters is a rich one and whether plastered on brick walls, carried in marches, or distributed to storefronts, posters have informed process, incited change, motivated progress, and made visible the voice of the people. This exhibition invited artists across our community to respond to the current calls for racial justice and recognize the historic importance of the sit-in demonstrations and violent backlash that was Ax Handle Saturday, the 60th anniversary of which will be commemorated in late August. We will continue to add submissions to this visual record during the summer and fall, so check back often. If you would like to submit a poster, you can find out more about that process HERE.
