On view November 10, 2006 - February 11, 2007, Godless Communists: Soviet Antireligious Propaganda features graphic posters that were used to promote a harshly antireligious agenda between 1918 and 1939.

The exhibition includes 17 recently conserved posters given to Smith in 1964 by Mrs. D. Spencer Byard (Margaret Mather, class of 1933), in addition to loans from other public collections.

This Website contains images of about half of the posters featured in the show, background and bibliographic material, and a ten-minute video that collects thoughts and responses from students, faculty, clergy, Museum staff, and others confronting this provocative material.
