This most historic and artistically successful banner edition was produced in 1976 by the Chuck Levitan Gallery of New York. These stunning banners were created by twenty important American artists, including such luminaries as Marisol, Will Barnet, Romare Bearden, Chaim Gross and Milton Glaser. The Banners are a limited edition of one hundred signed and dated 1976 by the artists.

The Bicentennial Banners traveled around the world with the United States Information Agency to major critical acclaim. They were also exhibited at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. throughout the Bicentennial year and toured the country with the Smithsonian Institute.

The Bicentennial Banners are now available for purchase. Museums, corporate lobbies, public spaces such as airports and malls would be greatly enhanced by these colorful banners. Their historic value, striking imagery and artistic quality (some of these famous artistsâ most beautiful works) make the Bicentennial Banners Edition also a wise financial investment for the individual collector.

The banners are made of nylon applique, have the quality of silk and colors that are vibrant and alive. This truly historic limited edition would add to a museum's collection important American artists at a very affordable price. The banners may be purchased individually or a set. They come in two sizes, 45" x 63" and museum size 5' x 7'.
