Prose and Poetry in Products and Advertisements

January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Did you know that Walt Whitman is considered by many to be America's greatest poet?

There will be a very special event on January 13 at the Walt Whitman Birthplace Association!

A preview and reception of Walt Whitman’s Prose and Poetry in Products and Advertisements, a spectacular collection that will be available for viewing from January 16 through April 7, will be open to the public.

To coincide with our year long commitment to Walt Whitman’s 200th Bicentennial celebration, we are collaborating with Ed S. Centeno, Walt Whitman Collector, in exhibiting various cultural artifacts depicting segments of Whitman’s prose and poetry in advertisements, posters, commercial products, fine arts, and private art commissions. Centeno has spent the past 33 years collecting Walt Whitman artifacts and memorabilia.

This free event will be open to members from 2-3pm and the public from 3-5pm.
