The Art of Protest (King Library)
Start Date: 2/1/2018 All Day
End Date: 3/30/2018

Event Description:
“The Art of Protest”

Presented to you by Sharat G. Lin, PhD. Mr. Lin is a collector and is the curator of “The Art of Protest” collection. He is also the former President of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, a writer on Global Political Economy and Social Movements.

This exhibit consists of 29 original silkscreen posters created between 1969 and 1979, except for 1 created in 2017 during the most recent upsurge in protests. The artists of these posters were mostly anonymous students at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley.
In 1969 – 1979, the dominant theme was opposition to the Vietnam War, but also Racial Justice, the Environment, State Repression, and the Functioning of U.S. Democracy. This exhibit documents through art the social movements of the period and how students and other activists viewed and responded to the issues of the time.

“The Art of Protest” will be on display from February 1st through March 31st, 2018 on the 4th floor of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library.
