 Sustaining and Spreading the Revolution:

Cuban Political Propaganda Posters from the Collection of Lindsay Webster

Following the Cuban Revolution, the new communist government used political posters to convey important revolutionary themes, such as anti-Americanism and solidarity with anti-colonial movements around the world.  The vivid and creative designs of the posters demonstrate how Cuban artists were able to develop their own style to express these ideas.  Please join us at Wofford College's Sandor Teszler Library Gallery and ­­ Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery to see this unique collection of rarely displayed Cuban political posters generously loaned by Lindsay Webster.
