CSPG's growing collection—one of the most diverse and important visual resources in the world—includes posters from North, Central, and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union. The historical sweep of the collection makes preservation of these graphic records of the utmost importance, and CSPG is committed to keeping history alive by protecting this invaluble resource. 


In many cases, posters are the only record of certain events—both historical and current—that would otherwise go untold. If you have any posters stored away, please consider donating them to CSPG so their stories will not be lost to future generations. Additionally, if you attend any demonstrations or protests, please try to collect and send posters to CSPG so that the collection can be as representative as possible of ongoing social movements.


Criteria for donating posters to CSPG:

  • Posters must have overt political content

  • Must be produced in multiples such as offset, silkscreen, woodcut, stencil, digital output, etc.

  • No one-of-a-kind objects accepted


If you are interested in donating posters to CSPG, please contact us at archives@politicalgraphics.org
