Cincinnati Art Museum's Circus Posters

Cincinnati Art Museum's Curator of Prints, Kristin Spangenberg shares some of the spectacular Circus Posters in the Museum's collection. The printer of the posters was Strobridge Lithography Company based in Cincinnati. These posters were designed to catch the attention of the public and draw an audience for the Circus performances. Not only are these posters works of art, but also an example of early outdoor advertising.
