On Labor Day weekend, the Seattle-Tehran Poster Show opened (go to site for location).  This exhibition, curated by Daniel R. Smith of Seattle and Iman Raad of Tehran, marks the first time that the U.S. has hosted an exhibition with Tehran designers, which makes it worthy of putting here, in a blog on politics.  The images are stunning, and many seem, at least to me, politically charged.  From the press release:

“This exhibit is a valuable step in showing members of each other’s larger communities how we truly think and feel,” says (curator Daniel R.) Smith. “It humanizes the other side and demonstrates not simply a willingness to reach out to one another, but a concrete example of how to do so.”
