The Society of Illustrators (128 East 63rd Street, New York) has a new exhibition on. Produced in collaboration with The Nation magazine, it's called Artists Against the War, a group show of 60 illustrators and graphic designers (from both the U.S. and abroad) examining the terrible fallout of U.S. Middle East foreign policy. The exhibition runs January 3 - 26 2008, with 100% of the proceeds from the opening night (January 9) entry fee being donated to Disabled American Veterans. A panel discussion, The Media: The First Casualty in Iraq, will take place on Wednesday Jan 23 at 7:00. If you can't attend in person, you can view a select slideshow of the exhibition here.
The stunning poster for the show, "Peace Bomb" (2005, Digital and mixed media) is by Brian Stauffer.
