This is pretty much a subculture with in a subculture . While a handful of institutions are vaguely interested , they still consider it commericial art . Someone with deep pockets , like that Moon Alice guy , would have to build a wing before they jump on those offers of donations .
it's true. I work for a museum. we acquired a nice lot of 60's era BG/FD posters a few years ago, but it was only after one of the print curators found a trustee to finance the purchase and exhibition costs. there isn't any real interest in "modern era" gig posters, at least not here.
The Denver Art Museum is the only fine art institution I'm aware of who might be interested in this stuff. the Experience Music Project in Seattle or maybe the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame might be candidates for accepting a collection.

If you donate these to a museum they will be in a basement for a hundred years until some curator decides to do spring cleaning, then it's coin toss on whether or not they think commercial art is "quaint" enough to have a small exhibit for.


You're better off selling if you want them to be appreciated.



just my opinion, I like my collection and consider it cataloguing art history but if that doesn't do it for you...then Haven's suggestion made me lolz and i'd jump on that train also. (but for your old mat daly's :) )

This may be precisely why the poster scene will ultimately matter in the greater context of the art world.

Posters received enormous interest, with many collectors and museum exhibitions from about 1895 through about 1920.

By then tastes had changed and, probably more importantly, commercial printing had also changed allowing, especially, the easy and

inexpensive reproduction of photographs.

there's still a small band of holdouts who collect these things called gig posters
