Please join us for a Political Poster Jam on Friday, February 25th at OMCA from 8 to 11pm. We’ll honor the power of political graphics and the Museum’s recent acquisition of a major collection of political posters.
8pm – 11pm Printing Demonstrations:
San Francisco Print Collective – print your own screenprint!
The Great Tortilla Conspiracy – Edible tortilla prints and new technology of food breakthroughs in honor of African American History!
& Eddie Colla – cut your own stencil!

We’ve commissioned a special poster for the event by Jesus Barraza of Dignidad Rebelde, and he’ll be giving away signed prints to a lucky few.

The Poster Jam is part of the Museum’s quarterly O Zone festival, happening that same night. Among other things, the evening includes live performances with master drummer CK Ladzekpo and Lagos Roots Afrobeat Ensemble, and a gallery talk with artist and historian Duane Deterville.
