The Seattle Center on Contemporary Art and the Amplifier Foundation are hosting an art exhibition of posters designed by artists from across the country for the women’s marches on Jan. 21, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
This is the last week you can see it: Check it out Thursday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Pioneer Square.
The exhibition includes posters made by Jessica Sabogal, Ernesto Yerena and Shepard Fairey, whom you may remember from this memorable “Hope” poster from back in the Obama days.
“This moment calls for new images, to disrupt the rising tide of hate and fear,” reads language about the exhibit from the Amplifier Foundation. “We the People need to come together under new symbols of hope…our America is one of equal humanity, it does not demean or discriminate….we are resilient.”

“It invalidated anything that’s good about me, just because of how I voted. Poof, it’s gone,” Jeffrey Medford of South Carolina told The New York Times.
