This event is ticketed separately from regular museum admission and we recommend you purchase your ticket in advance.
Forget about boring museum tours! Our Chief Curator is known for her relatable, funny anecdotes and casual style. Join her on an introduction to our first mini-exhibition dedicated to Amos Kennedy, as well as a tour of our permanent Poster History Timeline where she’ll dispel poster myths, share hot poster gossip, and give you a new appreciation for the wild world of posters.
Questions and fabulous attire are encouraged!
We will be taking temperatures of all guests upon arrival, and requiring masks and social distancing throughout the event. In order to ensure proper social distancing, we will also be providing headsets with disposable earbuds.
This viewing is free and members-only.
