Let your voice be heard!

In partnership with RileyStreet Art Supply, Bank of Marin,
The Rock Poster Society and Haight Street Art Center 

Produced by Bruce Burtch 

Marin County, CA residents between the ages of 12 and 18 are invited to design an art poster that communicates your hope, optimism, concerns and vision about the world in which you live. Using art, ideas and problem-solving skills, your poster will inform, challenge and inspire the community to take action and make a difference, especially in these troubling times.

­­Historically, art has been an effective form of community activism. Especially during the 60’s and 70’s with the “Make Love Not War” and “Give Peace a Chance” protest posters, to the more recent messages of “Black Lives Matter”, “Women’s Rights are Human Rights,” and concerns about climate change, art has expressed the important social issues of our times. With social media, potent messages and images can spread instantaneously around the globe.

This poster contest is an opportunity for you to engage in the critical issues facing humanity, express your feelings and use art to change our world.
