“Peace Now!”

Joe Brainard (1942-1994), [Peace Now!], 1971 (832.2002)

Herbert Perr, [Who Is Going to Believe Hypocritical Fairytales?], 1970-71, mixed media prototype for a poster that was never produced, (879.2002)

Who is going to believe hypocritical fairytales
When, behind a facade of noble ideas,
The price of revolver lubricant rises
And the price of human life falls?

I should like to drop
On the hay, with my head on her knee,
And lie dead still, while she
Breathed quiet above me; and the crop
Of stars grew silently.

Ad Reinhardt (1913-1967), [Untitled (Postcard to War Chief)], 1967 (805.2002)

Three poetic male/mail art/no art objects about peace/no war; revealing a muscular/minimal body of work by the Artists’ Poster Committee of the Art Workers Coalition.
