Donate Old Protest Posters and Placards for an Art Exhibit!!!

by journal Sunday, Aug. 13, 2006 at 6:22 AM

Did you make some amazing anti-Bush sign that has only been seen by your fellow protesters? Now is the time to show them in a museum!

Did you make one of those creative, poignant, angry, sublime, ironic,
raging signs we have been seeing in the recent Iraq protests? Did you
labor over a handmade banner at all the anti-sweatshop marches? Did you
make some amazing anti-Bush sign that has only been seen by your fellow

Now is the time to show them in a museum!

This autumn, the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest is organizing an
exhibition at the Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) across the street
from the LA Brea Tar Pits and LACMA. The exhibition is entitled "Street
Signs and Solar Ovens: social craft in LA". The exhibit highlights both
protest crafts (banners, activist lock-boxes, guerilla posters,
placards, puppets), crafts gone political (sweaters with slogans) and
utopian technologies (solar ovens, bikes, bio-desiel cars, bike

We are hoping to include as many street protest banners and signs as
possible for the exhibit. All displayed work will have the creator's
name along side it; if desired.

Please contact us at contact(at)journalofaestheticsandprotest.org if
you have something.
Please include a brief description (what protest was the object made,
when was it made, description of image or quote of text) so we can make
sure it is what we are looking for.
We hope to include as many posters as that fits our criteria. Posters
must have been made by socal residents or used in socal protests.
