Visit the Booth Western Art Museum to see art from some of America's foremost illustrators who contributed to the covers of The Saturday Evening Post in the 1950s and early 1960s. "Covering America: The Saturday Evening Post in the 1950s and early 1960s" will be on display in the museum's special exhibition gallery March 30 through Sept. 29, 2013.
Featuring 30 original paintings alongside The Saturday Evening Post covers they graced, the exhibit showcases a magazine that captured the heart and soul of America. The art of Norman Rockwell, John Clymer, Stevan Dohanos, John Falter, George Hughes, Amos Sewell, Richard Sargent, Mead Schaeffer and Thornton Utz embodies everyday life in post-World War II America.
Unique to the exhibit is the inclusion of several Western paintings by W.H.D. Koerner and Harold von Schmidt that were featured inside the magazine. The exhibit also includes 18 Western-themed original Saturday Evening Post covers from the museum's permanent collection.
