Event Description

From band posters stapled to telephone poles to the advertisements hanging at bus shelters to the inspirational prints that adorn office walls, posters surround us everywhere—but do we know how they began? Telling the story of this ephemeral art form, Dave Desimone of the Wisconsin Historical Society reexamines the poster’s roots in the nineteenth century and explores the relevance they still possess in the age of COVID-19 and modern social justice movements. This free live webinar and Q&A session will be held on Zoom. To receive the Zoom registration link, please email adultservices@harvard-diggins.org.
