Exactly how different is Social Realism from Socialist Realism? Are there any similarities between these seemingly distant genres?  Dr. Gabrielson will explore the nuances of American Realism from Norman Rockwell to the Works Progress Administration, and compare it with Socialist Realism, which was imposed on poster art throughout the former Eastern Bloc.

Dr. Izabela Gabrielson is on the faculty of Northwest College of Art and   Design, where she teaches history of illustration and art.

The lecture will be followed by a silent auction of a unique poster collection from the former Soviet era. Proceeds will support the UW PSEC and the Slavic Department.
