Newberry Library is archiving signs from the Women’s March

“An estimated 250,000 demonstrators attended the Women’s March on Chicago, and one of the city’s world-famous research institutions is working to preserve the event’s historical significance. The Newberry Library is asking people who attended the Saturday rally in Grant Park and those who were at the Women’s March on Washington, D.C., to donate items such as signs, banners, photographs, pins, buttons and posters from either event. On Facebook, the Newberry began urging people to save their signs and other ephemera from the rallies in order to help the library “build a living archive of modern protest that includes voices from across the city.” Feedback was so overwhelming that the library is now considering ways to manage donated materials” (via Time Out)
