POP-UP: Poster House - Push Pin Legacy Exhibition

VIP virtual lecture about the Push Pin Legacy and their innovative poster designs of the 1960s & 70s and more. Join Debbie Wells and Angelina Lippert, Poster House Chief Curator and the curator of The Push Pin Legacy exhibiton, for a VIP virtual presentation as they explore the Push Pin's early days with its founders to their major design contributions to music and theatre posters, New York promotional posters and more. Angelina is known for her relatable, funny anecdotes and casual style, so you will definitely enjoy the experience of virtually traveling through the Push Pin poster world with her. See many examples of works by the original Push Pin group (Seymour Chwast, Reynold Ruffins, Edward Sorel and Milton Glaser) as well as others, including Paul Davis, James McMullan and Barry Zaid. If you don't recognize these names, you will definitely recognize the art - and learn why these artists were geniuses in the field.

Artful Circle was among the first to discover Poster House in 2019 when it opened its doors in NYC as the first museum in the USA dedicated exclusively to poster design. Chief Curator Angelina Lippert and Samantha Hirsch, Director of Education invited me in right before opening day to see how plans for Poster House were coming along. Their location at 119 W 23 St in Chelsea is amazing. The building was built circa 1901 by the National Cloak Company and eventually became the home of Tekserve, an iconic Apple repair store before Poster House took over. In 2018, Poster House renovated two floors and created a museum atmosphere that incorporated the architectural features of the past with visitor-friendly elements that successfully showcase their world-class collection of posters
