Rarely displayed commercial posters from the 1890s through the turn of the 21st century will adorn the Delaware College of Art and Design beginning Nov. 3. The large-scale pieces of “The Big Picture: Illustration Art in the Printed Poster” encompass a range of subjects, artists and styles. Curated by David Pollack of David Pollack Vintage Posters, the show includes work by some of poster illustration’s masters, including Frank Brangwyn, Ben Shahn, Bernard Villemot, Roy Besser and Tomi Ungerer.
Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery
With floor-to-ceiling windows and 5,000 square feet of exhibition space, the Toni & Stuart B. Young Gallery offers a dramatic first glimpse of DCAD for even the casual passerby. The Young Gallery, which is located on the first floor of the DCAD academic building at Sixth and Market Streets, is open to the public seven days a week. Exhibition receptions are held in conjunction with Wilmington Art Loop on the first Friday of most months of the year.
As a transparent and accessible interface with the community, the Young Gallery gives students the opportunity to exhibit the best work they create as part of their curriculum to diverse local and regional audiences. It also allows students to experience work that supplements and enriches their studio experiences. In addition to regular shows of student and faculty work, DCAD mounts curated exhibits featuring work of regional and national significance.
