DIVERSITY an International Poster Exhibition

  • Location: Mayors Neighborhood Gallery, 2nd floor (Directions)

  • Dates: October 15 - November 28, 2014

"Immigration rights, racial tension, violence against women, religious strife – these are realities that face us daily. The ideas depicted in this exhibition encourage us to think about stereotypes and our perceptions of how we view others. Some posters go further by encouraging not only a change in thinking, but also suggest ways to make changes."

- Stephen Lewis

The posters in this exhibition are from a collection of more than 4500 of Stephen Lewis. He is a long-time activist in the labor movement, and the former Treasurer of his union. Stephen has exhibited at a number of public libraries in Massachusetts and two of the state Heritage parks. He has presented at the annual conference of the National Council on Public History and on local cable television programs.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Lawrence Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
