In the 1950s and 60s, the influence of fashion, film, and music could be seen in the glossy pages of magazine ads and commercial illustration. Mac Conner created advertising campaigns for a variety of products during the decades when the advertising industry was at its height and centered on Madison Avenue. The Museum's presentation will include printed pieces, correspondence with editors and art directors, reference photos, preparatory sketches, and a video interview with Conner, who is still living in New York City well after his 100th birthday. Visitors will explore images related to themes that include romance, family life, gender roles, and politics.
