Object history note

This is one of six anti-pollution posters sponsored by Olivetti Limited in 1971 and produced under the guidance of Jean Herzberg Lipman, a noted New York patron of the arts and longtime editor of 'Art in America'. With her impressive contacts, she attracted Roy Lichtenstein, Georgia O'Keefe, Edward Steichen, Ernest Trova, Alexander Calder, and Buckminster Fuller to the project. They each created a poster beginning 'Save Our Planet' then with a secondary slogan concerning the protection of water, air, wilderness, wildlife, people, and in this example, cities.
