Anti-Vietnam: Silk-Screened Poster: Is this the American Way?

$500.00

Year: 1969

Size: 24 3/4 x 17 3/4 inches

Printed in 1968 by students at the Rhode Island School of Design, this poster is part of a series created to protest the Vietnam War. This particular poster features a gas-masked anonymous person, with the quote "Is this the American Way" reading below. Supplies were donated by concerned supporters and the students ultimately made 8 posters in the series. They were sold for a few dollars that year, many being hung around college campuses and really wherever the students could slap them onto a wall. A complete collection of this series is held in the Library of Congress and is considered to be one of the more important examples of young activism in our country's history.
