Poster, WAC Is Watching, 1992
This is a poster. It was designed by Marlene McCarty and made for (as the client) Women's Action Coalition. It is dated 1992 and we acquired it in 1996. Its medium is offset color lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Founded in 1992, the Women’s Action Coalition (WAC) staged public demonstrations or "actions" to raise the visibility of women in art, culture, and society. The wide-open eye logo, designed by Marlene McCarty and Bethany Johns, signaled that WAC’s members were paying attention. The poster was watching, and so was WAC.
