Join an artist in residence to create original posters in this hands-on workshop, incorporating imagery from the Poor People’s Campaign Collection
in DC Public Library's Special Collections. In 1968, residents and visitors in Resurrection City drew and painted on a temporary plywood wall to express messages of solidarity among different races, cultures, and regions of the country in the human rights struggle. Inspired by the Resurrection City mural, which bore the message “Hunger’s Wall: Tell it Like it Is,” our artists have created poster-making kits allowing visitors to combine activist imagery from 1968 with their own messages for 2018. The Hunger Wall poster workshops feature commissions by four local artists who use art as a tool for resistance and social justice: Nando Álvarez, Adrienne Gaither, Monolith DC and Justin Poppe.
