About

At the turn of the 20th century, traveling actors, illusionists, and theatrical producers promoted live performances with brilliantly colored printed outdoor advertisements. These pictured magic tricks, fantastic battles, heartbreaking scenes, and grand dance numbers, among many other images. See posters for stage productions of TheWizard of Oz and Peter Pan long before they graced the silver screen, and discover lesser-known acts that have been all but forgotten. This exhibition features seven theater posters from the collection of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
