Fight for the Cause at the County Museum
Registration is now open for a poster graphics family workshop, “Fight for the Cause,” at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands on Saturday, August 6, from 1 to 4 p.m. Workshop activities are designed for families with children ages 5 and above. A $5 materials fee per participant is requested in addition to regular museum admission and pre-registration is required.
“This workshop is designed so families can make a statement—about the environment, a social issue, a personal belief, or a call to action,” said Jolene Redvale, the museum’s curator of education. “We’ll look at poster designs elements in recent as well as historic posters to identify what makes a poster effective, and then we’ll create posters that use those effective techniques to get the message across.”
With the permission of their creators, completed posters will be exhibited as part of the “Community Chronicles” display in the museum’s current special exhibit, “Turn Turn Turn: social movements 1965–75.”
Registration forms are available at the museum’s website, www.sbcountymuseum.org, or at the museum’s front desk.
