In high school our best friend had the extreme honor of inheriting an Abercrombie & Fitch window display poster. As a teenager, having a 10 foot by 10 foot vinyl poster of a very attractive shirtless man was pretty much the best thing we could fathom. In our mature adult state, we get just as giddy at the idea of buying a museum banner from a show that has ended...
is an online source for authentic street banners from museums around the world. Once a show ends, the banners are available for purchase on their website. With names like Deborah Butterfield, James McNeill Whistler, Nicolas de Largillière, Marc Chagall, and John Singleton Copley coming soon, it seems as if the selection is as varied as the works that hang in a museum.
The pricetag is a bit rich for our blood at the moment, but what a great way to spend some of your decorating budget if it is available! Each banner comes with hardware that allows for installation on your wall, and a percentage of the proceeds go back to the museum from whence it came. We think this is a very unique way to put art up on your walls, and is an especially poignant souvenir for a show that was meaningful!
