Persisters: Signs of Resistance

Show date: Fall 2019
Submission deadline: October 1, 2019

We’ll update this information as the show nears, but we’re collaborating with Juneau ReSisters to create protest signs. ReSisters have been submitting language for signs and we’ll encourage Persisters to select language and create an artistic sign. We’re hoping to scan signs and make them available for download and use for future protests, though we also encourage artists to make the original and/or art prints available for sale.
