All four posters have been added to the permanent collection of Poster House, the first museum in the nation dedicated to the art of the poster. 

With a background in comedy and improv, Maia Lorian has been featured in a range of productions including: Flight of the Conchords (HBO), The Onion News Network (IFC), a plethora of college humor videos that have gone viral and a series of films by cult filmmaker Mike Kuchar.  She has also worked as a performance facilitator for Marina Abramovic’s piece Generator and has been featured on Saturday Night Live.
