Drawn Games: Chess Posters from Around the World
A small selection of the World Chess Hall of Fame’s (WCHOF) over 300 posters are highlighted in Drawn Games: Chess Posters from Around the World. Dating from 1930 to the present, the posters span numerous artistic styles and are the products of many different creators. The subjects portrayed in the WCHOF’s poster collection—scenes from films, gorgeous designs made to publicize historic tournaments and world championship matches, and works designed for tournaments held on the Saint Louis chess campus—perfectly demonstrate the museum’s mission to celebrate the history of chess, as well as its impact on art and popular culture.
Drawn Games is curated by Shannon Bailey, Chief Curator, and Emily Allred, Curator; World Chess Hall of Fame
