The political posters of the 1960s and ‘70s defined a generation, helping shape contemporary politics.

Join Poster House Collections Manager Melissa Walker as she examines mid-century presidential election posters, including the Nixon, JFK, and Reagan campaigns. Explore how both mainstream and counterculture political posters spurred civic engagement, with special attention to posters currently featured in the Freak Power exhibition. Questions about political posters are strongly encouraged!

This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom with attendees cameras off. A recording of the event will be made available for all registered attendees. Closed Captioning will be provided. Questions about access? Please email Salvador Muñoz, Public Programs Manager, at [email protected]
