“The goal of Project 270 is to increase voter participation in the 2020 Election, particularly by those voters between 18 and 36 years of age. Project 270 aims to accomplish this by creating thoughtful, unique, and even personal posters that are designed by established and emerging artists. The general public will have the opportunity to purchase these posters, or to download and/or share these posters, all for free, on various social media platforms. The goal is to use the popular appeal, creativity, talent, and voice of these artists to get young people to vote.”

A selection of these posters will be on display  in the Rotunda Gallery until Election Day
