Everyone’s Art Gallery: Posters of the London Underground
Led by the Curator, Teri Edelstein
The London Underground posters were part of an effort to encourage Londoners to use this commercial transportation system. Considered one of the greatest branding campaigns in history, these posters formed a vibrant civic art presence—a public gallery available to all.
Because the exhibition highlights the greatest years of this campaign, in the 1920s and 1930s, a great many are in a style that we would define as Art Deco.
We are honored that exhibition curator and long-time CADS member Teri Edelstein will be our guide for this tour.
