New Online: A Digital Archive of Signs from Last Year’s Boston Women’s March
From The Boston Globe:
“Art of the March.Boston” is an interactive, digital trove — and a large one at that — of the many slogans, sayings, and witty and creative phrases that were scribbled or delicately drawn onto the placards people brought to the demonstration in January of last year, one day after President Trump’s inauguration.
Searches of the visual database, a year-long project headed by Northeastern University professors, researchers, and students, are broken down into three main categories: “Concern,” “Strategy,” and “Contains.”
Each one of those options can then be refined by topics such as “women’s rights,” “feminism,” “reproductive rights,” “race,” and many more options. Queries can also be narrowed down to what is on the posters, whether it be illustrations, text-only, photographs, or collages.
