Society of Illustrators Fall 2013

For those of you who are searching for a hidden gem in NYC, the Society of Illustrators is certainly one of them. In August, after some of us at the Guides Association of New York did fam tours of The Asia Society and The Roosevelt House at Hunter College,  I suggested that we stop in at the Society of Illustrators . Unfortunately, it was late and the Society would be closing soon. So, someone suggested that I arrange a fam trip there.

It was great fun learning about the artists behind the advertisements and illustrations and about the building and the Society.

A few of us stayed and paid full price ($30.00 plus tax and tip) for the Museum Experience dining option in the hall of fame room. The lunch cost is in addition to the very reasonable entrance fee but it is well worth it! If any of you are interested in drawing, you might want to visit the Society for sketch nights which are open to the public.

On October 23rd, an exhibit of original art for children's books will open. This should be paired with the exhibit at the Public Library about Why Children's Books Matter.

If you have children with you take a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with me and you will find the illustrations of Met Children's books on the walls.
