Content and Structure

Scope and content

This poster advertised an exhibition of drawings by Bridget Riley which was held in the Newbery staff lounge in the Newbery Tower at The Glasgow School of Art as part of the school's annual activities week. Riley is well known for her optical illusion paintings and is considered a leading figure in Op Art. During activities week, large bill boards on Renfrew Street displayed posters made by staff and students that advertised the week's events. Many of these posters can now be found in The Glasgow School Of Art's Poster Collection. An image of this particular poster can be found in the 1973/74 prospectus catalogue on page 21.
