Globe Poster: Not to be Missed! celebrates a slice of African-American music history by telling the story of Baltimore's own Globe Poster Printing Corp. The iconic print shop acquired a national reputation for its eye-popping posters that promoted musicians the likes of James Brown at the dawn of R&B to hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest. From Globe's founding in 1929 until its closing in 2010, the shop created a unique look that has left a lasting impact on design, pop culture, and music. The posters are a vibrant record of the birth of R&B, rock and roll, hip-hop and other musical genres rooted in African-American culture and history. Please join us for a dynamic exhibit, as well as concerts, screenings, workshops, and lectures inspired by the posters. This is a collaborative exhibition between the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), which purchased the Globe collection in 2011, and Creative Alliance. It is curated by Chloe Gallagher, MFA Candidate in Curatorial Practice at MICA.
