The pin up girl is sweet, yet equally a seductress, flirty as well as sexy, naïve but secretly naughty. She embodies sensuality, youth, fun, and pleasure. Men and women alike have admired her for nearly 100 years. The pin up girl could be found on the covers and centerfolds of thousands of magazines, calendars, ad campaigns, and even decorated WWII war crafts; thereby, pin up art has become an integral part of Americana.

"Poster Peepshow" celebrates the pin up girl by featuring original artwork by contemporary artists and pays homage to pin up masters such as George Petty, Gil Elvgren, and Alberto Vargas. Over the past decade it has become impossible to ignore the growing popularity to recapture the nostalgia of pin up glamour. We are pleased to contribute to the culture's growing appreciation with this exhibition.
