“Visual Voice: The Poster Art of Finn Nygaard”

It’s rare that an illustrated advertisement will draw and hold your attention with all the force of museum-worthy art, but the posters and prints created by the Danish artist Finn Nygaard certainly give the lowly poster’s reputation a boost. To celebrate the exhibit “Visual Voice: The Poster Art of Finn Nygaard,” the Museum of Printing History is devoting each of its three galleries to his work — the first time they’ve given their entire space to an individual artist. One gallery features a collection of his jazz posters — lively, vibrant promotional works that do the music justice — while the other two galleries will contain smaller works demonstrating the 51-year-old artist’s range. You can meet Nygaard at the opening reception at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 24. Regular viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays. Through April 10. 1324 West Clay. For information, call 713-522-4652 or visit www.printing-museum.org. Free.
