Press Release Description

 

Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Youth Poster Contest Let Your Voice Be Heard!

San Rafael: “Let your voice be heard!” is the rallying cry for Marin youth to engage in the critical social issues of today and to use art to express their views.

Marin County youth ages 12-18 are invited to design a 16” x 20” art poster that communicates their hope, optimism, concerns and social vision about the world in which we live. Using art, creative ideas and problem-solving skills, youth will develop a poster that informs, challenges and inspires the community to take action and make a difference, especially in these troubling times.

­­“During the 1967 Summer of Love, I was nearly consumed by my angst over the Vietnam War,” stated San Rafael resident Bruce Burtch.  “I vented my frustration by marching in protest and carrying signs of Give Peace a Chance and Make Love Not War. So many issues of those times are still prevalent today, such as war, racial and gender inequality, women’s rights, lack of trust in our political leadership, and more. This poster contest gives Marin youth a public platform for expressing their views on social justice.”

Great prizes for the winners and for their school or organization will be awarded in two age categories, 12-14 and 15-18.

The Summer of Love 50th Anniversary Youth Poster Contest is presented by Pacific Sun, in partnership with RileyStreet Art Supply, The Rock Poster Society and Haight Street Art Center.  The contest is being produced pro bono by Bruce Burtch.
