Please join Archivists Round Table for an exhibition tour and reception at NYC’s new museum, Poster House.
After several years in development, Poster House opened its doors this summer as the first museum in the United States devoted exclusively to poster design. They aim to educate and engage audiences through a curatorial exploration of large format graphic design and its public impact.
A.R.T. members will join Melissa Walker, Poster House Collection Manager, for a walk through of current exhibitions, including “Baptized by Beefcake: The Golden age of Hand-Painted Movie Posters from Ghana,” and “20/20 Insight: Posters from the 2017 Women's March,” - which Melissa also curated. Go behind the scenes with a sneak peek into storage and conservation; followed by a social hour with snacks and drinks in the Poster House café.
Please register in advance, space is limited.
