Posted! A Collection of Posters from Manchester's Past
In the Millyard Museum’s Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery
On exhibit November 16, 2023 through March 2, 2024
Throughout history, posters have played a critical role in conveying information. They can advertise products, annouce events, publicize instructions, and urge action. Some are utilitarian in design, while others can be considered works of art.
This fun and colorful exhibition explores over one hundred years of posters that have informed Manchester’s citizens, from proclamations and health notices to navy recruiting and motion picture advertisements.
