UNESCO's Posters

As you would expect from an organization that leads the United Nations in the fields of Communications and Culture, UNESCO not only has produced large numbers of posters to publicize its many programs and projects, those posters often have great artistic merit.

During its celebration of its 60th anniversary, UNESCO created an exhibition of the 60 most beautiful posters which had illustrated the Organizations priorities. Some were signed by famous artists, and others were products of the imaginations of staff members. The exhibition is still available on the UNESCO website.

The poster shown above was created by UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador Ikuo Hirayama. It honors a five-year major UNESCO project on an integral study of the Silk Roads as “roads of dialogue.”
