Art Of The Poster
The Art of the Poster: from Toulouse-Lautrec to Shepard Fairey
This exhibit of The Art of the Poster chronicles 125 years of poster design, a modern art form made possible by the advancement of color lithography techniques in the nineteenth century.
The Art of the Poster focuses on three key moments in the development of the art form, beginning with original posters from La Belle Époque ("the beautiful age") by such masters as Pierre Bonnard and Alphonse Mucha; Art Deco posters from the 1920s-30s, including iconic works by A.M. Cassandre and Roger Perot; and¬¬ rock posters of the 1960s by psychedelic artists such as Victor Moscoso and Wes Wilson.
This visually stunning exhibit is curated entirely from the Hallmark Art Collection, and will include a rare, early work by Shepard Fairey that serves as a culmination of the historic lineup. It promotes his signature Propaganda Printing Services and encourages the public to "THINK & CREATE" as well as to "PRINT & DESTROY."
