Curated by undergraduate students of Northwestern University Professor Christina Kiaer, this companion exhibition to The Left Front juxtaposes prints by Depression-era activist artists with works by more contemporary political artists.

Additional funding comes from the Carlyle Anderson Endowment, the Alsdorf Gallery Endowment, the Norton S. Walbridge Fund, the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Louise E. Drangsholt Fund, the Kessel Fund at the Block Museum, and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
