The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts will open a new exhibit March 30 dedicated to graphic artist James McMullan, who has designed the iconic posters for such Lincoln Center Theater productions as Anything Goes, South Pacific and Carousel.

"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.
