Another weekend of anti-Trump protests across the United States proved that the new President may be able to Make Protesting Great Again, if nothing else.

Handmade signs continue to dominate the gatherings and marches, so we decided to round up some of the most impressive, unusual, funny, and eye-catching placards we spotted.

Romanticism to Ruin: Two Lost Works of Sullivan and Wright memorializes Chicago’s Garrick Theatre and Buffalo’s Larkin Building, which were razed to build a parking lot and a truck stop.
By reinventing the traditional bokashi technique, Hamanaka reminds us that nothing is dead, even when many proclaim otherwise.
The company’s mastery of the art market’s smoke and mirrors is its most impressive illusion.
Sadly, though by no means surprisingly, there is precedence for this female erasure. Women have been and continue to be the executors of the invisible, unpaid, unaccredited labor that makes much of the world run smoothly.
