Golden Books Exhibit

Art by Mary Blair
Maybe I can go to this when I'm in NYC for my own show at Ad Hoc Art
Via Cartoon Brew, word of a cool new show at New York's Children’s Museum of Manhattan -- “Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Book”. Snip from the show description:
Among the artists who contributed to the series were greats of the European émigré community such as Garth Williams, Feodor Rojankovsky, and Tibor Gergely who had gathered in New York as the situation in Europe worsened during World War II; alumni of the Walt Disney Studios such as Gustaf Tenggren, Martin Provensen, J. P. Miller, and Mary Blair; and American aritsts Leonard Weisgard, Eloise Wilkin, Elizabeth Orton Jones, Richard Scarry, and Hilary Knight.
Golden Legacy: Original Art from 65 Years of Golden Books, through August 28, at CMOM, 212 West 83rd Street, NYC. Image: work from the artist Mary Blair, whose illustrations for Golden Books will be featured in this show. [ Thank you, John Walsh! ]
