• The 1970 Protest Poster Workshop at Sproul Hall

Art for Human Rights: Peace Now Slideshow

The latest entry in the museum’s ongoing Art for Human Rights series, Peace Now! commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the poster workshop. This exhibition invites viewers to consider the materiality, ephemerality, and utility of posters as instruments of political intervention. The posters’ dynamic arrangement—echoing their haphazard postings in public spaces—highlights the sense of outrage, urgency, and vulnerability expressed by youth coming of age during this volatile moment in American history.
