Art and Conversation: The Art of Reading

Tuesday, July 21 at 10 a.m.

with Mary Weaver Chapin, Ph.D., Curator of Prints and Drawings
via a live Zoom Webinar and Facebook Livestream

Join the Curator of Prints and Drawings, Mary Weaver Chapin, Ph.D., in a discussion about the exhibition, The Art of Reading. Featuring original posters, magazine covers, and book covers, this exhibition explores the flourishing of artistic posters in the United States in the 1890s, as they became more popular than the work they advertised. Come hear more about this brief but intense period of “poster mania” that swept the country. 

Take a virtual tour of the exhibition.
