Street Art Exhibition Shown in Washington State

Two sticker exhibitions curated by Catherine Tedford, director of the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery, will be shown at Central Washington University from Jan. 4 through March 10.

More than 1,600 street stickers from around the world—both historic and contemporary—will be on display at CWU's Museum of Culture & Environment in “Rewriting the Streets: The International Language of Stickers and Paper Bullets: 100 Years of Political Stickers from Around the World.”

A second exhibition, “Paper Bullets,” focuses exclusively on political stickers, dating from the early 1900s to today. From Industrial Workers of the World, stickers from the 1910s to protests over the U.S. Vietnam War, these political stickers were a way for activists to spread the word about important issues.

The exhibits will be accompanied by 41 artist statements and numerous text panels providing a deeper understanding of the work.

A preview of the exhibitions was featured in the Ellensburg, Washington, newspaper, Daily Record.

In 2015, The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) selected St. Lawrence to participate in its Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research. The award supports digital archiving of a sizable street art collection housed at the Brush Art Gallery while allowing faculty, students and staff to engage in collaborative work with other institutions.
