A new exhibit featuring rarely seen political posters created in the last 170 years opens Aug. 18 in UA - Pulaski Technical College’s Windgate Gallery in The Center for Humanities and Arts.

Sign of the Times: The Great American Political Poster 1844–2012 explores a variety of styles, design trends, and printing technology that will delight your eye, engage your imagination, and lead you to ruminate over past political commitments. The exhibit runs through Sept. 20. Exhibit hours are Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m.- 5 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

An opening night reception will be held 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17, and will include a gallery talk at 6:30 p.m. with Dr. Jay Barth, M.E. and Ima Graves Peace Distinguished Professor of Politics at Hendrix College. Music will be provided by Dr. Barry McVinney on saxophone and Mark Binns on piano. The reception and exhibit are both free and fully accessible to the public.

Sign of the Times has made every effort to bring eye-popping political graphics to the forefront and show the great American political poster as art. Sign of the Times was curated by Hal Wert, Ph.D., collector and professor of history at Kansas City Art Institute, and organized by Exhibits USA/Mid-America Arts Alliance.
