Scope and Contents

The collection is comprised of over 50 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. Several of the posters relate to the women's movement of the 1970s-1980s. Some of the posters are reproductions of earlier artwork, and there are also some wall calendars and maps.


The posters are arranged with posters related to New York City (mainly Tribeca) first, followed by reproductions of artwork and advertisements for art shows, then movie and television posters, then assorted miscellaneous posters and calendars. Posters related to the women's movement, which were donated after the bulk of the collection was processed, are found at the end of the container list, together in one folder.
