GOOD TROUBLE /
U DECIDE

Our GOOD TROUBLE/U DECIDE get-out-the-vote poster exhibit opened Sunday
at major intersections in Washington, DC and Austin, TX

Presented by

THE CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL ART
& MILLENNIUM ARTS SALON

America’s artists honor the legacy  of John Lewis
by creating get-out-the-vote posters that
will cause ‘good trouble’ by encouraging
everyone to vote

If enough of us vote,
we’ll decide.

Turn out could be key

____________________________

193 artists from the United States,
the Netherlands and Great Britain
answered our call for posters. 
____________________________

They want to make ‘good trouble’
for anyone who tries to
disrupt or ‘steal’ our election.

good trouble

This exhibition was inspired by John
Lewis’ courage and our belief that Art
can help the American people see
through the often dishonest and
divisive rhetoric that passes for
political discourse
in the United States today.

We want Americans to understand
that the number of us who vote this
year may turn out to be as important
as the candidates for whom we vote.

Because our system of representative
democracy is also on the ballot.
And those who don’t believe in
democracy will count those who
don’t vote as indifferent to
whatever they do to subvert it.

good trouble

At the end of the day,
it will be up to each of us to register
our support for free and fair elections,
now and in the future, by voting.

Much is at stake in this election.
The choices are clear.
