The Poster House in New York is the first museum in the United States dedicated exclusively to posters. On view, you’ll find posters from the late 1800s to their present-day. The museum aims to engage and educate its visitors in education about poster design and public impact.
Join the curators for a tour of the current exhibitions on view where they will “dispel poster myths, share hot poster gossip and give you a new appreciation for the wild world of posters.”
The curators who will be leading the tour are:
