The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of a gift from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation of 18 posters, signed by the artists, comprising the Voices & Visions Master Series. The series of posters by master Jewish designers such as Seymour Chwast, R. O. Blechman, Carin Goldberg, and Milton Glaster was commissioned by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation in 2012. The Voices & Visions concept was inspired by the Container Corporation of America’s Great Ideas series. Launched as an ad campaign in the 1950s, the Container Corporation paired quotes and graphic design and published the images once a month. Quickly, the campaign moved away from advertising and started to become an art phenomenon.
Voices & Visions is about art, about powerful messages, about combining them into posters, about starting conversations, and about continuing the Jewish journey. Originally offered as a limited release, the Masters Series took off and is now being used by Jewish organizations around the world.
These posters, along with explanations and some examples of “draft” versions of the posters, will be on exhibit at the Jewish Heritage Museum beginning February 1, 2016.
