World War Posters from the Berger Family Art Collection

Vintage Poster Art on Display at the Maltz Museum

Beachwood, Ohio (January 25, 2009) – During both world wars, our nation used posters to recruit, raise funds and exhort civilians to conserve. A collection of vintage war propaganda posters will be shown together for the first time at the Maltz Museum, opening February 3, 2010. World War Posters from the Berger Family Art Collection features exquisitely designed examples of wartime and period art. Often created by famous illustrators like Howard Chandler Christy and James Montgomery Flagg, these posters are prized for their rarity, use of color and creative use of imagery. A private collector spent decades amassing the collection. They will be at the Maltz Museum for just a short time; free with regular Museum admission. For more information please call 216-593-0575.
