Michener Art Museum in New Hope Highlights the Art of Hollywood this Summer in "Selling Dreams: Film Posters 1945-2005"

This summer will be the season for "Lights, camera, action!" at the James A. Michener Art Museum in New Hope, as the Museum presents Selling Dreams: Film Posters 1945-2005, an exhibition of graphic art taken from the world of motion pictures over the last half century. Sponsored by Princeton Packet Publications with additional support from a legislative initiative grant awarded by State Representative Bernie O'Neill, it will be on view from May 20 through September 4 in the Carol and Louis Della Penna Gallery. Drawn from the collection of Mark del Costello, the exhibition features poster art from fifteen countries spanning 60 years, including such film classics as West Side Story, South Pacific, Rebel Without a Cause, Dr. Strangelove, and Chinatown–as well as recent favorites Silence of the Lambs and Reservoir Dogs.   read more
