Poster Peepshow: The Art of the Pin Up
5th – 28th February
The pin up girl is naive yet naughty, sweet but a seductress, flirty as well as sexy. She embodies sensuality, youth, fun, and pleasure. She has been admired by men and women alike for nearly 100 years. The pin up girl could be found on the covers and centerfolds of thousands of magazines, calendars, ad campaigns, and even decorated WWII war crafts. In effect, pin up art has become an integral part of contemporary americana.
“Poster Peepshow” celebrates the pin up girl by featuring original artwork by contemporary artists, and it also pays homage to classic artists such as George Petty, Gil Elvgren, and Alberto Vargas. Over the past decade it has become impossible to ignore the growing popularity to recapture the nostalgia of pin-up glamour. We are pleased to contribute to the culture’s growing appreciation with this exhibition.
