Museum Mondays: Seniors curate two exhibits on propaganda, protests 2

This week, two complementary exhibitions open at the Wright Museum, exploring the ideas of propaganda and protest.

Senior Graham Lowden’14 has curated the exhibit Reason against Religion: Soviet Propaganda in the 1970s, which explores how Soviet propaganda used political postering to persuade the public about the evils of religion.

In a complementary exhibit, Amanda Lawnicki ’14 has curated an exhibit on the Holodomor, which explores how a 1980s campaign of postering protested the Soviet government’s forced starvation of Ukrainian people from 1923 to 1933.

Both exhibits will be open for a limited time, so see them now!

Additionally, note that as part of this week’s slate of Weissberg Week events, the Wright Museum will be hosting a Conviviality at 4 p.m. today, in the Courtyard. (See you there)
