The Library of Congress "Performing Arts Posters" collection illustrates the wide range of popular, live entertainment in America from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. The approximately 2,100 posters in the online Performing Arts Posters category represent the entire contents of three collections: the Magic Poster Collection, the Minstrel Poster Collection, and the Theatrical Poster Collection.

Both tif and jpg format versions of the same scans are included in this category. When adding categories the jpg version is preferred for Wikimedia projects due to size and more accurate rendering of thumbnail versions. To create cropped versions or other derived images, the tifs are normally significantly higher resolution as a starting point. Any derived versions should be created as new jpgs linking back to the original.
