This exhibition of original artwork explored the diversity of topics highlighting the cultural heritage of New York City. The exhibition provided an opportunity to raise awareness of the Postmaster General’s Collection which the museum acquired through a long-term agreement with the United States Postal Service. Thirty pieces of original artwork divided into six categories of stamp art relevant to the city’s heritage were displayed. These categories—Baseball, Broadway, City Life, Icons, Politics and Government, and Music—depicted a variety of art styles and mediums used to create some of America’s most beautiful stamps. The artwork celebrate important citizens, events and iconic buildings that have defined New York City as one of the greatest cities in the world.
