Linking Havana, Tehran and Seattle through art, posters

A design show featuring poster artists from Seattle, Havana and Tehran opens Labor Day weekend at the Bumbershoot Festival. The show will later travel to Tehran and then Havana. The curators have jokingly titled the collection of posters, the “SHT show” because, they write, when the get together it’s fun — "no politics, no prejudices — just an appreciation of our common interests."

Probably not this time, but maybe sooner, rather than later.
