The International Poster Center is holding a reception and party for its new exhibit, Razzia and the Art of Advertising, Thursday night (tomorrow) from 5 to 8. The artist will be there to sign posters. They say he's "synonymous with the retro-deco style of the 1980s." Yeah, I remember advertising in the 80s. First, no Photoshop, so art directors (like me) didn't have to do everything ourselves and could actually commission real artists like Razzia. Second, lots of drinking. Now everyone works too hard. Do I sound bitter? Maybe I'll go check this reception out, see if they have some free wine, and walk down memory lane.
Razzia and the Art of Advertising:
- January 15 to February 1
- Mon-Fri, 9-5; Sat/Sun, 11-6
- Opening Reception January 15, 5-8 pm
- 601 W. 26th St. (11th–12th), 13th Floor
