On Monday, March 9th at 6:30pm, Melissa Walker, the Collection Manager, comes to the Lewis Davis Pavilion (25 Waterside Plaza) to introduce you to this exciting museum.
Home to a collection of over 1,000 posters, Poster House features the works of Milton Glaser, the mastermind of I <3 NY, and Shepard Fairey, who created the Obama “Hope” poster. Located on W 23rd Street, the museum conducted extensive renovation on a 100 year-old building.
Melissa Walker brings extensive experience working in vintage posters and printmaking. Currently, she is digitizing the museum’s collection so that it will be accessible for research. Melissa has a master’s degree in studio art and previously ran her own contemporary art gallery.
