Darker Shades of Red

Darker Shades of Red: Soviet Propaganda Posters from the Cold War Era, Provides a rare opportunity to revisit the Cold War era through the exploration of the Soviet Union’s official imagery. Strikingly graphic in its socialist imagery, the collection of 55 posters reveals the economic, social and political ideology of the Soviet Union from the 1940s to 1991. The works on exhibit are drawn from the private collection of Gary Hollingsworth, a Florida based art restorer who traveled extensively in the former Soviet Union.
