Throughout history, posters have been the perfect media to express almost any message. From advertising a film, to sell products, events, or ideologies, posters have the power to move and touch masses. Today we present a selection from a collection of 100 posters created by 100 artists over the first 100 days of the Trump presidency. This important initiative is the brainchild of Max Slavkin and Aaron Perry-Zucker, the founders of Creative Action Network. When brainstorming about the idea, they came up with a simple design brief: They asked participants answer the question “What makes America great?”
“What Makes America Great is a collection of designs celebrating the things that our artists believe make America truly great.” Creative Action Network writes. “Proceeds support DreamCorps, a social justice accelerator founded by Van Jones that advances economic, environmental, and criminal justice solutions.”
Diversity, jazz, freedom of the press, women, the right to peacefully assembly, kindness, public lands, marriage equality, and Walt Whitman are some of the topics celebrated in the series. What do you think? What makes America great for you?
