40th anniversary of the environmental posters
11. December 2022
Today the messages are of an urgent virulence and topicality.
The environmental campaign was initiated by Fred Banks, Harcourts Gallery, San Francisco, on the occasion of a Hundertwasser exhibition in 1981. The poster Save the Whales was donated by Hundertwasser to Greenpeace Pacific Southwest, the poster Save the Seas was donated and handed over to the Jacques Cousteau Society (Cousteau Society, Norfolk) on December 11, 1982, in the West Plaza at Ghirardelli Square. All proceeds went to the respective environmental organisations.
