Colorama from the George Eastman Museum

Wood Gallery

January 13 through April 14

For more than four decades, enormous advertisements displayed in New York City's Grand Central Terminal affirmed a picturesque notion of everyday American life. The 18-foot-by-60-foot images depicted an idyllic nation: beautiful landscapes, holiday celebrations, world-changing historical events, family road trips, and patriotism. This exhibition examines the captivating advertisements, offering insight into America, and the histories of advertising, photography, and technology. Thirty-six reproduced images from the George Eastman Museum depict an idealized past for a new generation, and serve as a welcome reintroduction for those who lived through the decades that helped shape photography. Organized by the George Eastman Museum.

Open Tues-Sat 10 am to 5 pm, Sundays noon to 5 pm, closed Mondays.
