Lena Wolff & Lexi Visco’s VOTE PostersAhead of the critical November 2020 election, Wolff and Visco designed new 2020 posters to send across the country en masse. After fundraising and with support from a grant from the Berkeley Civic Arts Commission for the project, six variations of 30,000 VOTE posters and 25,000 postcards to voters were sent to over 100 towns and cities in key battleground states as a free public art project in mid-September. Graphically, the posters include the use of spare visual symbols that reference nature and American quilt patterns, drawing upon iconography that speaks to hope. The Factory serves as a pickup location for these posters. Find out how to get yours at the bottom of this post.
