New York Aviation Poster Exhibition

On Friday, September 18, Poster Auctions International and Long Island’s Cradle of Aviation Museum are teaming up to launch an exhibition of rare, early aviation posters. The exhibition, held on location at the museum, will showcase classic aviation posters from as early as 1908 up through the 1930s, alongside the museum’s well-known and extensive permanent aviation collection.

From famous French air races to Wright Brothers ephemera, scientific advancements in flight technology to historic advertisements, this show covers all aspects of early aviation history. Moreover, as all of these posters come from private collections located around the world, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see such a large gathering of great, original lithographic masterpieces.

The exhibition will only be open to the public up through October 18, at which time the posters will be returned to Poster Auctions International in time for their bi-annual auction of rare, vintage posters on Sunday, November 8. They will remain on view at the auction house until then.

For over 40 years, Poster Auctions International has been the world’s preeminent auctioneer of original, vintage posters. The offices and showroom are located at 601 W. 26th Street. For information, visit or contact Angelina Lippert at 212-787-4000.
