Soviet political art that spans more than 60 years has been curated into an exhibit by the David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University. The exhibit opens June 5 in the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University, 901 S. College St.
"Views and Re-Views: Soviet Political Posters and Cartoons" includes more than 100 posters, drawings, photo montages and postcards beginning in 1918, through the late Soviet period. The exhibit will run through Aug. 14.
The works of well-known artists like Viktor Deni, Dmitri Moor and El Lissitsky are included in the exhibit. Many of the pieces depict Soviet propaganda with Soviet impressions of the United States.
