Poster has a grayscale background image showing a figure in a loose dress with her hands and eyes raised up. To the left and right of the figure are stylized white line trees. Over the top of the figure, near the center, is "Isadora freed the dance" in white. Across the bottom of the poster are three photos of people, with their names below. From left to right: Ina Coolbrith, Gertrude Stein and Jack London.

This was from a series of 10 posters celebrating local "patron saints and sinners" that were wheat-pasted all over town the year Oaklandish was founded as "a covert street art campaign designed to illuminate local history and the unique cultural legacy existing here in 'the Town’ “. [LMC]
