The Poland Regained: Polish Posters from the 1890s to the 1930s outdoor exhibition in a public space near the Polish Consulate General in New York documents the early days of the newly independent nation.

It features posters by artists including Włodzimierz Tetmajer, Bogdan Nowakowski and Zygmunt Glinicki.

Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia.

In 1939, Nazi Germany invaded Poland, sparking World War II.

The exhibition runs until January 31.
