Posters for a Better World
by Robert Rauschenberg: Artist-Citizen
Robert Rauschenberg, "the man who turned contemporary art on its head," is featured in an exhibition of posters made for projects with direct public benefit. He has said, "...now it's up to the artists to wage peace."
Says Gallery Director, Lanier Graham, "These images are vibrant evidence of how an artist can help improve the world in which we all live." "In a postmodern world short on heroes, people -- especially younger artists -- are thirsty for role models who offer more than a self-centered image of what artists can do in the world."
