November 30, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$10
The Oregon Historical Society, 1200 S.W. Park Ave. Portland, presents a new exhibit, “Sign of the Time: The Great American Political Poster, 1844-2012,” on display through Nov. 30. The museum is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10, with discounts for students, seniors, teachers and youth. Admission is free every day for OHS members and Multnomah County residents.
As an art form, the American political poster has been sorely neglected, despite its effectiveness in conveying political messages to millions of voters often through the skillful use of visual communication. This exhibit surveys some of the most exciting and rarely seen works and explores a variety of styles, design trends and printing technologies to show the great American political poster as art.
