What’s The Score? The Posters of LeRoy Neiman
September 2, 2021–March 27, 2022

LeRoy Neiman designed posters announcing boxing matches, marathons, automobile races, golf tournaments, tennis championships, football games, and five Olympics. His work also became the face of some of the most established jazz festivals in the United States. 

In honor of the centennial of his birth year, this mini-exhibition highlights some of Neiman’s best advertising posters, promoting sporting events and concerts around the world.

This exhibition comes to Poster House through a generous donation by the LeRoy Neiman and Jane Byrne Neiman Foundation
