During the shortened spring semester, an exhibition of activist poster art lined the east side of Fisher Fine Arts Library. Presented by the Common Press—an old-fashioned printing press located in the building’s basement [“Gazetteer,” Mar|Apr 2008]—and curated by a student advisory panel supported by the Sachs Program for Arts Innovation, the posters were drawn from the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, a decentralized group of 29 North American artists.
The exhibition featured work from two thematic portfolios. We Are The Storm “celebrates the work of small frontline organizations and communities building resilience in the face of climate chaos,” and Migration Now! addresses issues pertaining to migrants and asylum seekers. Limited-edition prints of these and other posters are available at justseeds.org.
