The exhibit “Art of Protest” focuses on posters compiled from the 1960s and 1970s from protests at UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz collected by Sharat Lin. The posters, on display at De Anza College’s California History Center, cover topics ranging from anti-Vietnam war to environmental pollution. Lin explained the elements of history the posters depict at a reception Jan. 17. The “Stop War” poster is linked to a rally on May 21, 1970. Other posters show artistic influence and trends of the subject matter.
