Outside of its political implications, the Jan. 21 Women’s March offered an opportunity for artists to showcase their skills, in the form of spirited poster art, which is currently on display at Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) through Feb. 25.

We-the-People-17x30-01-1-580x1024Prior to the march, the Amplifier Foundation put out a call for march poster art from women artists around the country. The organization received 5,000 submissions, and narrowed it down to eight official Women’s March poster designs.

Amplifier made the artwork available for download, which offered another opportunity … this time for printers … as 40,000 posters of the selected artwork were readied for the march in Washington, D.C.
