Poster, 65 Bridges of New York

This is a Poster. It was designed by Tomoko Miho and made for (as the client) Container Corporation of America and made for Center for Advanced Research in Design. It is dated 1968 and we acquired it in 2009. Its medium is photo-offset lithograph and screenprint on paper . It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

To heighten the dramatic effect of a poster promoting the bridges of New York City, Miho suffused a stock photograph of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in red. The closely-cropped image of the bridge is seen from below so that the suspension cables swing from one corner of the poster to the other.

This object was donated by Sara Benda and Marc Benda. It is credited Gift of Sara and Marc Benda.
