Scope and Contents

The collection is comprised of 40 posters from the 1970s-early 2000s collected by Carole De Saram. These are primarily related to events in New York City and Tribeca, as well as popular culture, including movies, art exhibitions, and political conferences. Some of the posters are reproductions of earlier artwork, and there are also some wall calendars and maps. Although there are posters related to Tribeca and Manhattan Community Board 1 in the collection, the materials in the collection do not directly reference Carole De Saram.


The posters are arranged with posters related to New York City (mainly Tribeca) first, followed by reproductions of artwork and advertisements for art shows, and then movie and television posters. Assorted miscellaneous posters and calendars complete the collection.
