Posters & Cocktails: American Travel

May 24, 2023

Spring is here, and with that comes a new season of Posters & Cocktails. Celebrate the warmer weather with our favorite tipsy trio and explore the history of American travel posters!

As always, our Chief Curator will be hosting Nicholas Lowry of Swann Auction Galleries and Don Spiro of The Green Fairy Society over Zoom, traversing the great expanse of the United States from coast to coast through booze and beautiful vistas.

Don will get us packed and ready with our first cocktail as we pull out of the station. Then, Nicholas will puddle-jump westward, enticing us to visit popular destinations throughout American history. They’ll ping pong back and forth across the country until we are not safe to drive—but luckily, as armchair travelers, all of this is happening from the comfort of your home.
