On Friday, as part of NYCxDESIGN week, I visited Swann Gallery. Just off Madison Square Park on E25th Street, the gallery presented an eclectic and wide-ranging collection of modernist posters and I wanted to see what design inspiration might be waiting for me there.
The gallery did not disappoint! There were posters from a least a dozen countries including the U.S., Japan, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Hungary and many more.
I can’t say I got the best shots. But I think you can still appreciate how well done this exhibit is in terms of variety and quality of prints.
If you visit the gallery, there’s a comprehensive guidebook that provides all the details for each poster including number of prints produced and price. Normally, I would have documented some of these particulars. But on this gallery visit, I just wanted to enjoy the view.
I can see you had fun, Mary!
I did have fun. And the people at the gallery were so nice. One of them sent me home with a goodie bag of beautiful note cards and other beautiful design treats. Loved that!
