Student Protest in Print

In the spring of May 1968, an occupation begun by a group of French students grew to one of the largest demonstrations in modern history. Striking workers and protesters brought Paris to a halt, and the posters and graffiti that amplified their message have become part of our visual vernacular. With original artwork that was posted on the streets of Paris fifty years ago and contemporary prints influenced by current student led gun violence protests, this exhibition explores the role of graphic art in political organizing.

Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4 and Saturday and Sunday 1-4. There will be an opening reception, Friday, February 15, 2019 from 6-8pm and lectures by Dr. Tenley Bick and Denise Bookwalter on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 6pm. Metered parking is available on the main level of the Call Street garage; after 4:30 and on weekends all legal spaces are available to visitors.
