Chamomile Tea Party: Artist Jeff Gates remixes WWII propaganda posters in order to bring attention to a Congress that he says has become paralyzed by partisan politics.
Oct. 29-Nov. 7: Old Propaganda, New Politics
If you're already sick of party politics, you're not alone. Graphic designer Jeff Gates has revamped World War II propaganda posters using new text that relates to current political issues. The artist works under the guise of the Chamomile Tea Party, which he founded in 2010 as a response to the bitter, ongoing battle between America's political left and right. The bipartisan posters call for change, and are on display at the Curator's Office through Nov. 7.
