Posted by UCSB Library on February 3, 2011

Come together… to see an exhibition of vintage posters in the College of Creative Studies Gallery at UCSB;  February 7-March 4, 2010 (12 Noon-5PM).

This exhibition features a few vintage posters from the 1970’s by San Francisco Bay Area activist artists who represent a spirit of cultural diversity, social equity/social change, and international human rights.  Revealed in the imagery are significant interethnic collaborations in which shared interests of African American, Asian American, Chicano/Latino, and Native American communities are united within individual posters. The posters are drawn from major graphic art collections housed in the California Ethnic and Multicultural Archives (CEMA) in the UCSB Library.

  • Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 8, 5:30 pm, College of Creative Studies Gallery.
