May Day poster acquired by MOMA


Molly Crabapple’s May Day poster was recently acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City as part of their permanent collection, documenting art from Occupy Wall Street. The acquisition is covered by The Guardian and includes an interview with Molly on its significance.

The May Day poster is based on an original watercolour Molly created, then converted into a 5-colour 12.5×19″ screenprinted poster by Melissa Dowell for Occuprint and their portfolio of silkscreened posters from the Occupy movement.

Melissa wrote about the process of converting the watercolour and printing it as a screenprint on her website:
