This exhibition is in partnership with AIGA Design for Democracy and the League of Women Voters
2020 marks the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote in 1920. It was the first legislation for women’s voting rights. Not until the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 were voting rights of ALL women protected and enforced.
The Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote poster campaign, in partnership with the League of Women Voters, commemorates this milestone. A core group of invited female designers submitted the first 65 non-partisan posters, to launch the initiative with their vision and voices. Through these posters, these women joined forces to collectively contribute to dialogue in design and society. This moment in history is an incredible opportunity to catalyze women in design, voting rights, citizenship, community, and diversity. The collection aspires to not only support present day voter participation, but to also serve as a backdrop for discourse and examination of the history of voting rights and women’s fight for equality.
In addition to exhibiting AIGA’s Get Out the Vote: Empowering the Women’s Vote poster campaign, the Miller ICA will also launch a Pittsburgh presentation of posters. The PGH Edition will amplify the voices of women, transgender, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) artists.
The AIGA poster initiative continues at aiga.org/vote, where AIGA members can contribute posters to motivate the American public to register and turn out to vote in the 2020 general election, as well as local elections to come.
