Poster House

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

We’re not done with posters yet on this trip! A brand new museum dedicated to showcasing design, advertising, and the history of posters opened less than a week ago in Chelsea.

Poster House kicked things off with two exhibits and some of the most fun interactive components I’ve experienced in a museum. I was particularly fond of the work by cyan.

In this interactive bit, probably intended for kids, you can see how CMYK panels come together and form an image.

I normally bristle when I see interactive screens, but these “make a poster” workstations helped me understand color theory, stylistic eras and concepts. Plus also? It was fun!

You could even jump in front of a green screen and inject yourself into a poster. (I think Rachel is holding a large bottle of wine above.)
