“Hello neighbors,

As some of you may have noticed, our historic Embassy has taken on a splash of color in recent days. A total of 21 Polish posters now adorn our Embassy fence as part of the “Poland Regained” exhibit created in cooperation with the Poster Museum at Wilanów, the oldest museum of its type in the world. This exhibit was specially prepared in advance of the 100th anniversary of Poland’s rebirth which we will be celebrating in 2018. The posters, dating from the 1890s-1930s, are a visual link to the past and include different motifs including vacation advertisement, sporting events, patriotic appeals and more. Whether you are interested in art, history, or just want to see something unique, we invite you to the intersection of 16th Street and Fuller Street NW to have a look and explore the exhibit. Informational brochure can be found on location. Let us know what you think and tag us in your tweets @PolishEmbassyUS!

Do zobaczenia / see you!

Polish Embassy, Washington, DC”
