A Brooklyn art exhibit for the Statue of Liberty

Too bad this poster doesn’t provide any details on what, exactly, was being exhibited by this now-extinct arts group. The Brooklyn Art Association galleries stood at 174 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights.


The Fund for the Pedestal, launched in 1884, helped bring the Statue of Liberty—the “Bartholdi Statue,” as the poster calls it—to New York Harbor in 1886.

    Thanks for posting this–a fascinating piece of history, not just for the event it advertises but the art, language & typography.
