LIC Members Show
Nov. 9, 2007-Feb. 3, 2008

The art and collections of the Museum’s Low Illustration Committee (LIC) is presented in a special exhibition entitled Low Illustration Works, Past and Present in the Low Illustration Gallery, on view through Feb. 3, 2008.

Some 30 illustrations are presented in the exhibition.

The LIC has a long history at the Museum, dating back to the 1950s, following the death of the Museum’s first director, Sanford B.D. Low. An artist and illustrator himself, Low was friendly with many artists who contributed to the great hey-day of American magazine and book illustration in the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s. The LIC was formed in memory of Low following his sudden death, and many of the committee members have been faithful contributors to it for more than 50 years.

The exhibition features works by such well-known artist/illustrators as Walter Wick, Howard Munce, Vincent DiFate, Wendell Minor, Leonard Everett Fisher, John Witt, Murray Tinkelman, and Don Moss, as well as illustrations from private collections owned by Chairman Lindsley Wellman, Walt Reed, Billie Levy, and others.
