High Museum of Art:

This exhibition surveys the origins of modern poster design featuring works from the collection of Merrill C. Berman, who focused on twentieth-century radical art. Berman’s collection represents a complex history of modernism, as avant-garde artists actively produced fine and applied art for commercial and political aims. Starting in the early 1900s, these designers revolutionized typography and the graphic image, creating poster designs that changed artistic perspectives, as well as the hearts and minds of people.

Exhibit is open to all general admission ticket holders $16.50.
