Students’ posters pump up the vote

By Geoff Preston

The walls of the Communication, Arts, and Sciences building are always adorned with artwork done by students of advertising professor Henry Brimmer. Recently, however, the artwork has a more political appeal. On Friday, Brimmer, some faculty and 40 of his students displayed a series of refreshingly simple political ads. These posters did not support Obama or Romney, but instead the power of democracy. “The idea is to make people aware about voting,” Brimmer said.
