Communications Sector Art Collection
MoSRG’s collection of communication sector art largely tracks significant developments in mass market consumer communications equipment and services. These developments include early broadcast radio in the 1920s, telephones in the 1930s and 1940s, television in the 1940s and 1950s, tubeless radios in the 1960s, etc.
Most of MoSRG’s communication sector art is in the group areas including the main bullpen, the conference room, and lounge areas. Its placement mirrors the development of mass-market communications services and equipment that was generally done by teams of people with diverse technical skills.
