InterContinental Boston Hosts Exhibit of Ocean Liner Posters


The line between "museum" and "hotel" keeps blurring: For example, the InterContinental Boston on the city's waterfront (and 1.5 miles from Boston’s Black Falcon Cruise Terminal) has paired up with International Poster Gallery to launch “Titans of the Sea: Posters from the Golden Age of Ocean Liners,” an exhibit of vintage ocean liner advertising posters from 1914 - 1954.

The show, which runs through December at the InterContinental Boston, explores the history of ocean travel with 10 selections from a recently acquired collection of more than 200 ocean liner posters. Included are works from major lines like Cunard, Holland America, French Line, and many others. Best of all: The posters are for sale and range in price from $2,000 to more than $20,000. Also for sale are a selection of antique maritime items from Boston’s Lannan Ship Model Gallery, such as vintage life savers, buoy lights and engine order telegraphs from the 1920s that complement the exhibit.

To celebrate this new nautical exhibit and Boston’s expanding Fort Point Channel (upon which the hotel sits and where numerous new docks have recently been installed), InterContinental Boston’s new outdoor bar, RumBa on the Waterfront, launches a new drink, Captain’s Cocktail, made from New England Corn Whiskey, Cherry Heering, Angostura Bitters, lemon juice, simple syrup and bourbon-soaked cherry.
