Creative Action: Political Graphics Archive

Apr 4, 2014
Spotlight Category: College

political-posterStudents in Creative Action: Integrated Learning worked with Carol A. Wells, Executive Director and Founder of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) in Los Angeles, to produce a video that documents the CSPG’s extensive collection of political posters. Faculty member Kerri Steinberg taught this class, in which students learned about protest movements and visual expression. The Center’s educational and research archive comprises posters that are historical records of people’s struggles to make a better world. Founded in 1989, the collection includes more than 60,000 posters, and is the largest collection of post-World War II social justice posters in the U.S. and the second largest in the world. As Carol Wells states, “Every week, a poster teaches me something I didn’t know.” Support for this project came from the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.
