From Their Perspective VII: Art Posters for a Brighter Future

We are excited to announce the William H. Hannon Library’s summer 2019 exhibition in Archives and Special Collections, “From Their Perspective VII: Art Posters For A Brighter Future.”

For this seventh annual exhibition in our From Their Perspective series, we feature visually stunning posters created by Los Angeles artist John August Swanson. These art posters convey powerful messages on various pertinent social issues, such as environmentalism, immigration, living wage, and the death penalty. Eighteen Loyola Marymount University undergraduate students, who worked at the Hannon Library, participated as curators in the exhibition. Each student presents a poster of their choice and shares their reflection on social justice issues that resonate with them. We invite you to come explore the colorful art posters through our students’ perspectives.

The exhibition will be on display from June 3, 2019 through July 26, 2019. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on June 12 at 4:30 p.m. Please RSVP if you would like to attend this event.

Our student curators include: Kaitlyn Behrens, Ashley Boykins, Fabio Cabezas, Ava Calpino, Col Cavanaugh, Kristen Corbett, Julianna Dunivin, Michaela Galeski, Karolina Garcia, Halle James, Margarita De Leon, Eva Lopez, America Negrete, Camille Orozco, Tiffany Parham, Anthony Prodis, Alanna Rodriguez, and Silvia Velasquez-Cruz.
