Participating artists were asked to create posters in the style of WPA-era posters of the 1940’s. The goal is to raise awareness of certain social/political/environmental issues of today. The posters will be distributed in public spaces, donated to educators and workshops, and exhibited on April 16th at EXPO 72 / Chicago Tourism Gallery
