Guerilla Warfare: Screen Printing Your Protest

PAFA recently acquired a new suite of Guerrilla Girls posters, known for their poignant, surprising and often funny projects unpacking and bringing to light gender inequities in the art world for the last thirty years. Join PAFA students and staff for a fun afternoon workshop that uses their posters as inspiration to help you make your own print that lets the world know your personal statement of protest. Write your own, use one of theirs or collaborate with other artists to share your new message with the world.
