Rewriting the Streets: Stickers from Around the World

Notices

 

Stickers.
They're everywhere.


Slapped onto bathroom stall and lampposts, across car bumpers and turnstiles; some appear to be silly, while others cry a thought-provoking political statement. Stickers are one of the most accessable forms of art in the world, are affordable or even free, and can be simple to make and display. 

We might think that stickers are a relatively new form of art, but what would you do if you could see thousands of stickers spanning decades and geographical lines?

 

Rewriting the Streets: The International Language of Stickers

From Jan. 4 - March 10, the CWU Museum of Culture and Environment will be inundated with thousands of stickers from Catherine Tedford and Oliver Baudach's collections. 

These stickers explore many topics, including pop culture, economic inequality, racism, sexism and invations of personal privacy.
