"Turning Realism into Design: The Posters of James McMullan" will run through June 11 in the Vincent Astor Gallery within the Shelby Cullom Davis Museum. In addition to showcasing McMullan's numerous posters, the exhibit includes sketches, photographs and watercolor or gouche renderings, which trace his steps from concept to completion.
On April 4 at 6 PM in the Bruno Walter Auditorium, McMullan will join fellow Broadway graphic artist Fraver (Frank Verlizzo) to discuss the process of creating Broadway artwork. Fraver's work includes the original posters for Sunday in the Park With George and Sweeney Todd. The NYPL is exhibiting his collection through April 23 within the Plaza Corridor Gallery.
