Join us at the opening of Dialogues: Poster Art of the Soviet Union! OPENING: Friday March 13, 2015 6-9pm www.sovietpostershow.com #citysoviet #sovietpostershow City Gallery San Diego City College AH 314 1508 C Street In 1989 the Soviet government offered an opportunity to U.S. Citizens-a chance to view contemporary Soviet life through the loan of 75 posters. They were displayed at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art and dealt with political themes, social issues and the arts in the period from Perestroika and Glasnost to the disintergration of the Soviet Union. The original show was organized by members of AIGA San Diego chapter and supported by a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts. The show went on to other U.S. locations as part of a traveling exhibition sponsored by the American Institute of Graphic Arts. Dialogues: Poster Art of the Soviet Union was created and organized by the faculty and students of the San Diego City College graphic design program. Thanks to Ron Miriello, the owner of the poster collection for sharing these treasures with our community. Soviet historical posters are featured alongside new works created by contemporary artists, designers and illustrators for Dialogues. Like their historical counterparts the contemporary works feature political, social and arts themes but include a visual or conceptual reference to Soviet culture. This show will be free and open to the public at the stunning new City Gallery and will run from March 13-April 13, 2015. New designers include: Sean Adams, Gary Benzel, Stefan Bucher, Maximo Escobedo, Jennifer Hewitson, Josh Higgins, Jessica Hische, Don Hollis, Amy & MaeLin Levine, Rafael López, Steven Morris, Joel Nakamura, Joel Sotelo, Michael Osborne
