Historical Note

The San Francisco Poster Brigade, originally called the Wilfred Owen Brigade, was begun by artist Rachael Romero and Leon Klayman in the San Francisco Bay area in 1975. In 1980 they began the Internationalist Art Show: Anti WW3, a mail-art phenomenon in San Francisco. The show became a festival of art, poetry, dance and performance, travelling to Los Angeles, Tucson, New York City and back to San Francisco until 1982.
