Bonnie Siegler on Signs of Resistance: A Visual History of Protest in America
Bonnie Siegler is a world-renowned graphic designer voted one of the fifty most influential designers working today by Graphic Design USA. She has worked with clients like Oprah Winfrey, Saturday Night Live, Newsweek, and HBO, and lent her fundraising and design skills to support Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, as well as Hillary Clinton’s most recent presidential run and Doug Jones’ Senate race. “I believe that, as designers and visual storytellers, we should use our powers for good,” says Siegler. Siegler is also a proud member of The Resistance. Her grandfather escaped to America from Nazi Germany in 1938 so you could say resistance is in her blood.
Now, in Signs of Resistance: A Visual History of Protest in America, Siegler combines her two passions to showcase a collection of visual expressions of resistance throughout American history. In hundreds of iconic, smart, angry, clever, unforgettable images, Signs of Resistance chronicles what truly makes America great: citizens unafraid of speaking truth to power. Many of these images throughout our history are as relevant today as they were then.
A moderated author talk will be followed by a reception.
