The posters on display in the social hall this summer (July 10 – Sept. 4, 2016) are from countries all over the world. They speak of peace through a language which we all understand – the language of art.
Wit Ylitalo was a peace activist from Madison, Wisconsin who, with her friends, Mary Cunningham and Donna Fuelleman, had a life-long concern for world peace. These three women for peace collected peace posters over a number of years. Their grass roots effort was a heartfelt and meaningful attempt to further impress upon others that the rest of the world is also concerned for the need of peace on this earth and good will toward all.
The poster exhibit was initially sponsored by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom. The exhibit will be on display at First Universalist through September 4.
