Alphonse Mucha: The Paris Years

May 5, 2021

Join Poster House’s Chief Curator Angelina Lippert, as she tells the story of Alphonse Mucha and how his posters changed the advertising world. Learn how a serendipitous commission for Sarah Bernhardt led to making Mucha the most in-demand commercial artist of his generation, bringing Art Nouveau to the streets.

This program will feature an introduction to Poster House, as well as discussion about Mucha’s artistic style and historic impact, followed by Q+A with the curator.

This program is intended for adult audiences. Closed captioning will be available.

This program will be streamed live on Zoom and recorded. You must register with your email address in order to receive the link to participate, which will be sent to your email the day of the event.
