A Golden Age of Poster Design: Magazine Posters from the 1890s
February 1 – July 9, 2017
More info:

Pittock Mansion
3229 NW Pittock Dr, Portland, OR 97210

Discover the beauty of antique posters and their role in advertising. Advertising long relied on handbills and posters, but improvements to lithographic printing in the 1880s meant publishers could inexpensively reproduce colorful artwork. The new artistic possibilities prompted an international poster craze and elevated graphic design to a fine art.

Magazines, a popular source of entertainment at the time, were among the many products advertised through posters. In this exhibit explore stunning American examples from a golden age of poster design from beloved magazines like Harper’s Monthly and bygone publications like Lippincott’s and The Century from a private local collection.”

    Receiving the opportunity to view these works in person would be extremely inspirational, since poster design, advertising and vintage cover art were the reasons I became a graphic designer.

    My mother just turned 90, she said just two days ago that she has never been to the Pittock Mansion and she wants to go soon. This would be a great event to bring back memories of her 90 year journey. I would love to win tickets and take her.
