The true calling of graphic design: Agencies in Action. This kind of political engagement is what I've been searching through design textbooks to find for years, and it's the stuff that designers always say can't be done because, with few exceptions (Stephen Heller being a significant one), they usually operate according to a model of graphics as strictly a service profession. More examples here.
Oh my goodness, it's Julian Brolaski's terrific new Mongrel Vaudeville project! See me and Alan Sondheim perform live at Freddy's on April 21st with contortionists, paranormal ventriloquists, magicians, and drag performers.
