Political artist Lisa Link will exhibit her show ?Warnings? at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center through the month of May. An opening reception with the artist will be held Friday, May 9, from 6-9 p.m. In addition, a panel discussion on political art will be offered Monday, May 12, from 7-9 p.m. featuring Carol Wells, director of the Center for the Studies of Political Graphics in Los Angeles, among others. These events are free and open to the public.
In ?Warnings,? Link juxtaposes the collapse of the women?s movement in late Nazi Germany with women?s reproductive rights today. She utilized a propagandist style of poster design in response to aggressive antifeminist messages that equated abortion with the holocaust.
Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. In addition, every second and fourth Saturday of each month, the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center remains open until 9 p.m. to celebrate Second Saturday and Cultural Café programs.
The Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center is located at 300 W. Second St., in the Pomona Arts Colony. For more information, call (909) 469-0080.
