The Hurricane Poster Project began in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005-- an effort to raise money for Red Cross by bringing together poster artwork from artists and designers all across America. When Andy and I were brainstorming about our Rebuild This City poster, he pointed me towards these posters as inspiration (Andy contributed a poster to the project himself). Throughout history, poster art has played a major role in the healing and helping of nations, peoples, cities and countries in times of natural disaster... What happened in Nashville this past weekend did not compare to Katrina in terms of casualties, but the losses and devastation were nonetheless severe and widespread. I would love to see more artwork rise out of this tragedy in Nashville, or to see our poster inspire other artists to create their own for the cause. Here are a few posters that came out of the Hurricane Poster project:
