HISTORY OF RESISTANCE: "Art of Protest" exhibit collects silk screens from 50+ years of political action

The San Jose Peace and Justice Center presents a new exhibit focused on the art of social unrest. The event will feature a collection of almost 30 silk-screened posters, some of which date back to the 1960s—including works of art created for the civil rights and anti-war movements. Through these prints, a larger narrative emerges, painting a picture of more than 50 years of protest. The show also features new additions to the Peace and Justice Center’s collection, including a print focused on the surge of protests in the Trump era. (YK)
