The New York saga of one of the original "Mad Men." Illustrator McCauley ("Mac") Conner (b. 1913) grew up admiring Norman Rockwell magazine covers in his father's general store. He arrived in New York as a young man to work on wartime Navy publications and stayed on to make a career in the city's publishing industry. As the first exhibition of his work, Mac Conner: A New York Life presents more than 100 vintage sketches, original tear sheets, and hand-painted illustrations created for advertising campaigns and women's magazines like Redbook and McCall's. With overt references to gender, sexuality, and fashion, Connor's work demonstrates how commercial artists helped to redefine American style, culture, and identity during the boom years following World War II.

Venue Description: Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm. $10; $6, seniors/students; free, 12 & under.
