Stamps and the city

Museum exhibit celebrates NYC

The 1998 Jazz stamp is one of several featured in the National Postal Museum’s new exhibit.

The National Postal Museum is showing the Big Apple some love.

“New York City: A Portrait Through Stamp Art,” an exhibit of 30 original artworks commissioned by the Postal Service, is now on display at the Washington, DC, museum.

The exhibit is divided into six categories that represent different areas of New York City’s heritage, including Broadway, city life and music.

The collection features concept drawings, as well as the approved versions that appeared on postage stamps.

The artwork is on loan from a USPS collection that includes almost 5,000 other pieces commissioned for stamp consideration over a 70-year period.

More information is available on the museum’s site.
