This poster from the Museum of Contemporary Crafts, known today as the Museum of Arts and Design, announces the 1971 exhibition ACTS: A Series of Participatory Exhibitions/Events for Total Involvement. The museum was located at 29 West 53rd Street in Manhattan until 1986. Today, this site is the location of the Museum of Modern Art’s Ronald S. and Jo Carole Lauder Building. Offering an alternative to the traditional art museum exhibition experience, the exhibition presented a series of experimental works and events that involved wearable sculpture and performances throughout the city. Artists listed on the poster include Carl and Heidi Bucher, Marilyn Wood, and Jim Burns.
