THE TOLERANCE PROJECT has brought a message of social acceptance to over 100,000 people in 26 countries. Founded by artist-activist Mirko Ilić, this initiative showcases posters designed by artists from around the world. THE TOLERANCE PROJECT starts a conversation about inclusion, which can only begin with a foundation of tolerance. In a world increasingly split by race, religion, sexuality, and national origin the show utilizes the unique power of design to remind us what we all have in common. THE TOLERANCE PROJECT includes over 137 posters made by designers worldwide. The selection exhibited at Maine College of Art represent a larger global conversation. On view from December 13, 2019 – February 22, 2020 Maine College of Art: Congress Street Windows + MECA Lobby Public Reception: First Friday, February 7, 5–6:30pm MECA, Porteous Lobby 522 Congress Street, Portland ME, 04101 (Free admission) For more info: toleranceposters.blogspot.com
