Political Button Exhibition now Open


Display of political buttons in the HKS library. Five display boxes contain political buttons on different themes. A bright poster in the shape of a political button hangs over the exhibit. The title reads, "Pinning your Hopes."

A selection of buttons from the Steven M. Rothstein  Political Buttons Collection is now on view in the Harvard Kennedy School Library. Located to the left of the circulation desk, the exhibition of buttons highlights female candidates, social justice causes and movements, and catty campaigns. Though the exhibit shows a fraction of the buttons in the collection, students and researchers interested in exploring the entire collection can find digital images of more than 1500 buttons in VIA.  The exhibit will be on view until November 10th.
