Join Poster House on the last Sunday morning of every month, from 9:15–10:15am for a family-friendly, interactive, virtual poster tour and a related art-making experience. Admission is free; advanced registration is required in order to receive link access and a list of suggested materials. See below for details.

Movie posters are beloved by collectors. Join us for an interactive virtual tour of the current exhibition You Won’t Bleed Me: How Blaxploitation Posters Defined Cool & Delivered Profits to learn how poster designers portrayed the heroic, strong, and cool Black characters of 1970s Blaxploitation cinema. Then—just in time for Halloween—participate in a workshop where we will design costumes for the many characters we play in our own lives.

Materials: 
four full-body black and white photos of participant printed on plain paper
oil pastels/cray-pas

This online event will be hosted on Zoom. Closed Captioning will be provided. This event will not be recorded due to the presence of minors. Questions about access? Please email Salvador Muñoz, Public Programs Manager, at salvador@posterhouse.org.
