The Art of Harvey Kurtzman at Society of Illustrators

Heads up, Comics Fans, the Society of Illustrators has a show up honoring a creative genius and former SVA instructor, The Art of Harvey Kurtzman. If you have ever read a story from the old color version of Mad, you have read Kurtzman’s work – he wrote every story and then collaborated with an incredible bull pen of artists (Wally Wood! Will Elder! Jack Davis!) to create the printed version. The show is up through May 11th, with the opening reception taking place tomorrow night from 7 to 11 – so be sure to check it out.
