Art for Human Rights: Peace Now! 

When: Through July 12
In 1970, President Richard Nixon announced an expansion of the Vietnam War into eastern Cambodia. After fifteen years in Vietnam, the maneuver prompted outrage across an already divided United States. At UC Berkeley, a coalition of students, faculty, and staff formed to protest the escalating violence abroad and at home. Rapidly, they produced silkscreen posters on any surface available—used computer paper, old festival posters, pieces of cardboard—and plastered them across the campus and the cities of Berkeley and Oakland. Fifty years later, Peace Now! presents a selection of these posters from BAMPFA’s collection and places them in context with other protest material created at and around UC Berkeley in the sixties and seventies.
