Join us for our Salon Series, where Letterform Archive staff invites you to experience materials related to a specific topic of interest to the collection.

This month we’ll look at posters, periodicals, and handbills by designers with a cause. We’ll discuss works by artists like Sister Corita Kent, Amos Kennedy, and the student and worker revolutionaries of May 1968 in Paris. The material will focus on social and political issues, exploring the role of visual communication in advocacy and activism.
