“Sustaining and Spreading the Revolution: Cuban Political Propaganda
Posters from the Collection of Lindsay Webster”
Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery, Campus Life Building, and Sandor Teszler Library Gallery
Following the Cuban Revolution, the new Communist government used political posters to convey important revolutionary themes, such as anti-Americanism and solidarity with anti-colonial movements around the world. The vivid and creative designs of the posters demonstrate how Cuban artists were able to develop their own style to express these ideas. This is a unique collection of rarely displayed Cuban political posters generously loaned by Lindsay Webster. The opening reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, March 12, in the Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery in the Campus Life Building.
Sunday, March 1, through Tuesday, March 31
Women’s History Month: “Women at Wofford: Images from the Archives”
