“Its Own Distinctive Delight:” Art of Advertising the Golden Age of Great Lakes Passenger Steamships
Posted on March 13th, 2023 by Kelly O'Toole
Join us at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum for the second lecture in the ‘Port to Paint’ lecture series!
During the Golden Age of Great Lakes passenger steamships, print media was the primary form of advertising these luxurious vessels. Steamship companies promoted ships, routes, ports of call, and onboard leisure activities with vibrant, colorful, and detailed artwork that reflected major trends in architecture, interior design, and illustration. Join Claire Herhold from the Michigan Maritime Museum in South Haven for a look at the beautiful artwork from these advertisements, and a sneak peak of the Museum’s exhibit, “Full Steam Ahead: The Golden Age of Great Lakes Passenger Steamships.”
