Film Poster Expo - Dwight M. Cleveland Collection

Jul 12 to Oct 29, 2019 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Norton Museum of Art will present the first, extensive museum exhibition of classic movie posters from one of the most prominent private collections in the world. Coming Soon: Film Posters from the Dwight M. Cleveland Collection, comprises more than 200 posters representing comedies, musicals, Westerns, sci-fi thrillers, dramas, and others that date from the turn of the 20th century to the late 1980s. The exhibition provides a colorful and comprehensive overview of the history and allure of Hollywood – and movie poster art. Posters of iconic films, such as Casablanca, Singin’ in the Rain, and North by Northwest, as well as memorable cult classics including Barbarella and Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, will be featured in this exhibition. The posters selected for Coming Soon illustrate the artistic techniques – pastel, oil painting, water color, photomontage, and air brush – and printing techniques – lithography, hand-stenciling, off-set printing, and photographic reproductions – that artists have used to celebrate and promote iconic movie stars like Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford, Carry Grant and Grace Kelly, Harrison Ford, and so many others. Coming Soon not only celebrates one collector’s passion, but also provides a rare survey of the history of film posters that have become an important fixture in popular culture.
