International Poster Exhibition debuts at UMSL

During the Chicago International Poster Biennial, opening this week at UMSL's Gallery FAB, 92 award-winning posters from 21 countries will make their very first traveling debut. This poster is called “C’est L’été,” or "This is Summertime."


For the first time in its history, the Chicago International Poster Biennial show will be on display outside of Chicago.

Gallery FAB on the campus of the University of Missouri–St. Louis is serving as host for the Second Chicago International Poster Biennial Finalists Exhibition. The exhibit will run through April 12 and feature 92 of the 175 finalist posters created by award-winning international poster artists from 21 countries around the world.

Jennifer McKnight, associate professor of art at UMSL, organized this special exhibition with Lance Rutter, director of the Chicago International Poster Biennial.

“If you came out last year to see the CIPB Juror’s show, you are going to love this collection of winning posters from the 2010 Chicago Poster Biennial Finalists show even more,” McKnight said.

Gallery FAB hosted the CIPB Juror’s show in fall of 2011.

The exhibit’s opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 19. Lance Rutter, CIPB director, will attend the reception, and CIPB2 posters by acclaimed New York graphic artist Paula Scher and CIPB2 catalogues will be available for purchase. CIPB2 was the Second Chicago International Poster Biennial, held in 2010.

Gallery FAB is at 201 Fine Arts Building at Rosedale Drive and Florissant Road, 63121. All exhibits at the gallery are free and open to the public. Regular hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call 314-516-6967 or visit

  2. If your art piece arrives damaged, you can always send it back, requesting for
    another one. A thoroughly chosen wall art canvas can become a really fantastic decoration for your living room.
    Wall decals make a good decorative option and wall art.
