Power In Numbers


Now in a Pop-Up Art Loop Gallery @ 205 S.  State Street

Please join us for the closing night of Power In Numbers. This night is sure to pack just as big of a punch as the opening. We have great DJs lined up, it’s free, and of course there are 40 posters created by talent from all parts of the world!


*Listen to the CAD Report Podcast. For the first Chicago Art Department podcast host Nat Soti welcomes Jason Frohlichstein and Mike Wilgus, curators for the Power In Numbers Exhibition. They discuss the show, design, posters and debate Shephard Fairy vs. the Mona Lisa

Power In Numbers is an international poster exhibition showcasing the work of over forty contemporary designers, illustrators, and printmakers. Participating artists have been asked to create a poster exploring their perspectives on multiplicity, ubiquity, and collectivism in contemporary poster design.

Power in Numbers addresses working in multiples and how posters are able to reach a wider audience through their innate accessibility. Posters are omnipresent within present day culture, making us both aware and oblivious to their presence. They have the ability to persuade, inform, enlighten, and even entertain. By uniting a diverse group of creative disciplines through one common medium, Power In Numbers strives to capture the global temperature of today’s leading poster design.

All work is available for purchase. To schedule an appointment for a private viewing or to purchase work between the opening/closing, please contact the Chicago Art Department at jason@chicagoartdepartment.org or wilgus@chicagoartdepartment.org
