Explore the Past, Present, and Future with our Upcoming Poster Exhibition

Acting on the Courage of our Convictions

a Spiral Q print and stencil retrospective

Opening Friday June 6th – at 6-8PM
at The Last Drop – 1300 Pine St.

Print and stenciling have been essential tools in the artist activist’s toolkit throughout history. This spring Spiral Q is working with teenagers from Philadelphia Student Union and Girls Rock Philly, to remix imagery from historical political posters to bring their own personal and political convictions to life. Posters created in these workshops will be on display along with a collection of works from throughout Spiral Q’s history.
