Explore the impact, culture, and design of posters, both as historical documents and methods of contemporary visual communication through temporary exhibitions, a growing permanent collection, and educational event. The first poster museum in the United States provides a space for inquiry for all those interested in design, advertising, and public interventions.
Current exhibitions include The Utopian Avant-Garde: Soviet Film Posters of the 1920s and Ethel Reed: I Am My Own Property.
