Equal Equals Love

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | February 12, 2021

Happy early Valentine's Day!
These serigraphs (screen prints) on paper were created by Spunk Design Machine in 2012. 
These posters, included in the "Poster Offensive 6" exhibit, reference the 2012 proposed but defeated Minnesota state constitutional amendment which would have defined marriage as being "solely between one man and one woman."
Both posters are titled "Equal Equals Love."
