NEW YORK, NY.- School of Visual Arts is pleased to present the newly opened Poster House Museum with a significant donation of posters from its iconic Subway Series. As part of the ongoing donation, which initially includes nearly 100 select works from the past three decades, each newly created poster will subsequently join the Museum’s permanent archival collection. Poster House officially opens to the public this Thursday, June 20.

Since its inception in the early days of SVA, the Subway Series has historically given prominent designers and artists amongst its faculty the chance to showcase their talents, reach new audiences and promote SVA with a series of posters designed specifically for the city's subway system. As part of the Subway Series, nearly 200 posters have been created by artists such as Ivan Chermayeff, Milton Glaser, Yuko Shimizu, Paul Davis and Nathan Fox. In what is currently New York’s longest running ad campaign, each poster serves as a snapshot of the College's history and spotlights the wide-ranging talents of the many acclaimed faculty.

SVA’s donation consists of 98 of its Subway Series posters stretching back to 1996, including works by Milton Glaser, Louise Fili and Paula Scher, amongst many others. These posters join an impressive selection of permanent additions to the Poster House collection, including works from the 2017 Women’s March, political and educational posters, pop art, vintage propaganda posters and more. For more information on the Subway Series, including a video series featuring “Hall of Fame” artists and a peek inside the process of how they’re created, visit

Poster House is dedicated to presenting the impact, culture, and design of posters, both historic and contemporary. Designed by LTL Architects, the 15,000 sq ft. space at 119 West 23rd Street will host lively, rotating exhibitions of international posters from all time periods and cultures, exploring how this ephemeral medium came to become the people’s art. The museum includes two exhibition spaces, a cafe, a children’s area, climate-controlled storage, an educational workshop, gift shop, interactive features and offices.

An exciting new addition to New York’s cultural landscape, Poster House draws out hidden histories of poster art as never before, maps their continued role in today’s media landscape, and encourages future design as the medium is reclaimed and reworked by successive generations in order to communicate quickly, effectively, and seductively to an audience constantly on the move.
