All of Us or None

If you're in the Bay Area of California, be sure to check out this exhibit of special collections material at the Oakland Museum of California: All of Us or None: Social Justice Posters of the San Francisco Bay Area.

From the site:

"Celebrating the recent acquisition of the renowned All Of Us Or None (AOUON) poster collection, OMCA presents the first comprehensive exhibition exploring the poster renaissance that started in the mid-1960s as both a legitimate art form as well as a powerful tool for public debate on social justice issues. Presented as a companion exhibition to The 1968 Project, the exhibition features 50 original political posters framed and traditionally hung, in addition to over 200 posters digitally printed at size and wheat pasted to the gallery walls, a method similar to how they were originally displayed.

"This exhibition is guest curated by collection archivist and author Lincoln Cushing. Accompanying the exhibition is a catalog published by Heyday Press."

Lincoln Cushing, by the way, is an active member of the PLG.  Congratulations, Lincoln!
