If your idea of fun is socking it to the man, and you know a good protest poster when you see one, you'll love the 'Decades of Dissent' exhibit that opens tomorrow, October 11th, at Skirball Cultural Center.
Caputring the spirit of '60s and '70s counterculture, it will showcase political posters as "potent tools for social change." Famous slogans and related icons like "Black is Beautiful," "Ecology Now," and my all-time personal fave "Make Love, Not War" will be fixtures on the artistic landscape.
The group show will run through February 17th, so there's plenty of time to catch it. However, if you live by the words "What do we want? Freedom. When do we want it? Now" the operative word will be 'now.'
Peace out, man.
