Onward with the Revolution: Late Soviet-era Posters
Onward with the Revolution: Late Soviet-era Posters is an exhibition from the permanent collection of the Phillips Museum of Art. F&M professors Jon Stone and Nina Bond selected 18 posters to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Russian revolution (November 7, 1917). Over the course of the fall semester, Russian Studies students will research the posters. This collective scholarship will provide intellectual content for the exhibition, for the permanent collection, and for the publication of a catalog to be released at the end of the semester.
