There is an old saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words." Rights and Reproductions Associate Hillary Kativa discusses theater posters for a production titled The Wages of Sin. The posters depict a morality tale that gives a glimpse of late 19th-century performance art and convey a broader sense of social values of the period.
