Historical Note

Scope and Content

This locally-produced, spatter-painted poster, dated July 27, 1972, was apparently produced in association with visiting professor Gordon Kluge's effort to bring more new energy into teaching.  That energy was symbolized by the energy in coal.  Professor Kluge's notions included the conceptual art project of painting the University coal pile.

The poster is signed by Professor Kluge and others.
