Primary Artist: Terry Forman
Created: San Francisco Collective, 2012
Dimensions: 17.5″ x 22.5″
This poster was done in 2012 in collaboration with the Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) 2012 political poster retrospective which contained many Fireworks posters from the 1980-1990s. Fireworks, along with several other artists in the San Francisco Bay Area, was asked to create a poster that would be silk screened on site during the exhibit. We chose to create this poster because then, as now, there is a war raging against women’s reproductive rights, gender violence is on the rise, privatization is eliminating childcare and social services, particularly affecting Black and other women of color and working class women, and there is a backlash against gay marriage and LBGTQ rights.
