Green Patriot Posters at the Walker Arts Center


Above is a picture of the installation wall of Green Patriot Posters at the exhibition: Graphic Design: Now in Production at the Walker Arts Center (Minneapolis, MN) through January 22, 2012 and the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (New York, NY) in the summer of 2012. 

Exhibition co-curator, Andrew Blauvelt writes in the accompanying exhibition catalog: 
[Started in 2009] “… the ongoing Green Patriot Poster project is conceived to explore the potential ways the third and fourth wave environmentalism might be represented or depicted, the project solicits ideas in the form of posters that are crowdsourced through a website where new entries can be uploaded, existing designs rated and commentary appended, or designs downloaded for use.” 

The poster series is a very interesting example of the democratization of the design, production and distribution of topical posters for public consciousness and responsiveness.
