WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH
Some ways to celebrate talented, brave women throughout NYC for women's history month and all year long.
Closes Aug 21
See striking decorative advertisements for literary publications by Ethel Reed, who shot to fame in 1895 as a fresh talent in the poster world, became the darling of the international press in a matter of months, and then disappeared from public life by 1898. Look for hints of the struggles of being a female artist in the male-dominated art world of the late 19th century in colorful, stylized figures.
See our guide to Poster House.
Closes Dec 31
See Ashley Longshore’s paintings of inspirational women including Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Jackie Kennedy, Marlene Dietrich, Cleopatra, Oprah, Gloria Steinem, Nina Simone, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks and Jane Goodall in a photogenic gallery at the Diane von Furstenberg store. Good stop for International Women’s Month.
Join Poster House for a family-friendly, interactive, poster tour and a related art-making experience. Available in-person and virtually.
This month, look at posters that use photomontage and paste-up techniques, and then create own collaged story cubes inspired by gallery explorations.
