A collaboration with the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc.
In 1962, Lincoln Center initiated a program to commission posters by prominent artists for the then newly-built performing arts complex.  The brainchild of philanthropist Vera List and her husband, the poster program expanded in 1970 to include limited-edition, signed and numbered fine art prints.  The exhibition presents a selection of posters and prints from the program’s past 50 years by renowned artists Helen Frankenthaler, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol, among others.
