HEAR OUR VOICE
On behalf of Amplifier, Cleo Barnett produced a nationwide public call for art for the iconic Women’s March on Washington. Ove eight days, 5,000+ submissions were submitted. Cleo worked with a panel of judges, including the leadership of the WMW, to curate five poster graphics for mass distribution. Cleo managed the production and distribution of over 50,000 posters in Washington, D.C. during the 2017 United States Inauguration and (more significantly) the Women's March on Washington. These iconic artworks were carried by tens of thousands of marchers at the historic Washington March and in cities around the world as the digital downloads spread online.
Over one hundred artworks submitted to the Women’s March open call were curated for a nationally touring exhibition titled HEAR OUR VOICE. Each piece of art has a story, each artist had an intention, and together they continue to inspire and galvanize women’s rights activists.
