Podcast Interviews: Poster House Museum NYC Director Julia Knight

Monocle on DesignWhen New York City’s Poster House museum had to close its doors in early March, director Julia Knight wondered how the institution could support the city.

Today her inspiring solution can be seen across all five boroughs.

Poster House is the first museum in the United States dedicated exclusively to posters.

Through exhibitions, events, and publications, Poster House presents a global view of posters from their earliest appearance in the late 1800s to their present-day use. Poster House takes its mission from the medium, aiming to engage and educate all audiences as we investigate this large-format graphic design and its public impact.

Posters explore:

  • mass communication and persuasion
  • the intersection of art and commerce
  • control of the public domain
