An Introduction to the Poster House with Melissa Walker
March 9 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Poster House, a new museum in the heart of Manhattan, is dedicated to the history of the poster. It showcases design and advertising posters.
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, the Collection Manager, 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.
