Main Street to Madison Avenue Opening Reception
Join us for our upcoming Spring 2017 exhibition Main Street to Madison Avenue highlighting many of the most significant illustrators, photographers and designers that lived and worked in Westport in the 50’s-70’s, and who left an indelible mark on contemporary art and culture through their creative art in advertising. View original art and advertisements from artists such as Bernie Burroughs, Al Parker and Bernie Fuchs, alongside works by current artists, like Andy Warhol, Walter Robinson and Richard Prince, who were directly influenced by the iconic design and aesthetic of that era.
Simultaneous with Main Street to Madison Avenue, the third annual High School Student Exhibition will open on April 21. High School students throughout Fairfield County have been invited to submit original works of art showcasing their creativity and artistic talent for the Exhibition. The exhibiting art work and award recipients will be selected by distinguished artists Ann Chernow and Leonard Everett Fisher. The High School Student competition is sponsored by The Honorable Alan and Janet Nevas in memory of Tracy Sugarman.
On view through June 23.
