School of Visual Arts Launches James McMullan Retrospective
26 Nov 2012
The School of Visual Arts launches a career retrospective of Broadway illustrator James McMullan, known for his artwork for Lincoln Center Theater, Nov. 26. SVA will also honor the artist with its Masters Series Award.
McMullan's bold, often-muscular style has graced the Lincoln Center Theater posters for the revivals of Carousel, Anything Goes and South Pacific. His artwork also indelibly captured such new works as The Light in the Piazza, Hello Again, Other Desert Cities, Arcadia and Parade.
The retrospective, presented through Dec. 15, showcases McMullan's work from the "1950s; 1960s editorial illustrations for publications such as TIME, Esquire, Rolling Stone and New York magazine; theatre posters from Lincoln Center; and new paintings to be published next year in his memoir about growing up in China," according to SVA.
McMullan will be honored with SVA's Masters Series Award Nov. 29.
On Dec. 4 at 7 PM, he will speak about his career with iconic graphic designer Milton Glaser, who is the SVA acting chairman and Master Series laureate.
The SVA Gallery is located at 209 East 23rd Street. Visit sva.edu.
