Take Another Look! The Art of the Poster
Whether they are produced in print or electronically, posters are an effective way to advertise and promote. Graphics and text combine to catch the eye and inform prospective attendees about upcoming events and offerings of the Gottesman Libraries' Education Program. But, did you ever wonder where the images come from? While many are found "labeled for re-use" via Google Images Advanced Search, others are drawn most carefully from the Teachers College Art Collections. The historical art collections inspire beautiful displays in the third floor Offit Gallery, while they are fully accessible through Pocketknowledge, the social, digital archive of Teachers College. Be sure to check out the following links, including those for the Pocketknowledge Viewer, which lets you browse art works in a slide format, in different sizes, and with notes about the about the work, including details on dimension, medium, color, subject matter, special features, provenance, value, and viewing information. 170116_Tours_219x365Library Tours Spring Night in the Wood (1956), by Lubesnow Alexander Ziegfeld Collection of International Children's Art             170123_Workshop2_219x365Workshop: Rough Seas?
