Thirty Years of Slingshot, A Poster Retrospective. Centerfold posters from the archive of fifteen Slingshot newspapers are on display starting May 1, at the independently owned and operated Berkeley Stamp and Engraving. Our reception is open to the public and will take place on Saturday, May 11 from 5:30-8:30PM. Come for the food, stay to take in the show!

Slingshot is a quarterly, independent, radical, newspaper published in the East Bay since 1988 by the Slingshot Collective. We also publish the annual Slingshot Organizer radical calendar planner. We are an all volunteer, non-profit, tax exempt project of the Long Haul.

The "Slingshot Retrospective" is an arena to take in the full picture of Slingshot's history. Members of the collective have selected fifteen various centerfold posters from the past thirty years to put on display. These works of art and articles cover a wide range of topics, from ecology and climate change to anti-capitalism and workers' rights. The exhibit is hosted by Berkeley Stamp and Engraving, a historic business in the city of Berkeley since 1929.

Coming next month:
Political posters from the archives, and in-depth research by the Slingshot collective.
