Moving Violations Exhibition Poster

Moving Violations Exhibition Poster

Conover, San Diego, California, 1996

Description

Moving Violations is an exhibition of selected artworks by homeless men and women living in San Diego. Its name is derived from a common civil-code infraction often given to the homeless.

To advertise the show, the immediate idea was to design a poster that really was cheap and done by hand, and didn’t just look that way. A color photocopy of a selected painting was glued to a piece of butcher-block paper that had a screen of hand-scrawled typography. Each poster was then crumpled before being posted.
