PULP ART TALKS
High Drama: Pulp Magazines and the Artists Who Worked for Them
Saturday, March 10
Take a lively look back at the pulp era with two experts on the field. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission. Children free to age 18.
Join illustration historian Terry Brown for a look at the popular mid-century fiction magazines described as “the pulps,” the high-drama artworks that appeared on their covers and pages, and the talented artists who satisfied public demand. Sensational subjects—from romance and westerns to crime and detective stories—were popular fare for the genre, which will be explored. Former Director of the Society of Illustrators, Terry Brown teaches at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts and serves as Director of the Artists’ Fellowship.
