For a century, poster art has been used effectively for commerce, propaganda, protest, image, and personal expression. This course will focus on two particularly vibrant and expressive applications of this medium: the concert poster and the theatre poster. For stylistic inspiration and a basic historical overview, we will look back at the most revolutionary movements and artists of poster art: from the French Art Nouveau posters of the 1890s to the psychedelic-rock posters of the 1960s.
