The Original Mad Man: Illustrations by Mac Conner

February 9, 2019 – May 12, 2019

Between 1940 and 1960, before advancements in print technology and the proliferation of photography, ad companies relied on illustrators, Ad Men, to give their brands a visual identity. Advertisements in popular magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Women’s Day and McCall’s established a shorthand for aspirational, middle-class American living: fedoras, cigarette holders, swooning large-eyed women and men in sharply tailored leisurewear.

The Original Mad Man: Illustrations by Mac Conner, a special exhibit organized by the Museum of the
City of New York, features the work of McCauley (Mac) Conner, one of the leading “Ad Men” of the 1950s and 60s. During this time, Conner’s captivating advertising and editorial illustrations graced the pages of major magazines, including Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Ladies’ Home Journal, Woman’s Day, and The Saturday Evening Post, helping shape the popular image of postwar America.

The exhibit explores the enduring influence of commercial artists on 1960s fashion, film, music, literature, social norms and art; as well as one man’s prolific career in New York City, the world’s media capital and the country’s publishing center, in the pivotal years after World War II.

Over 70 original hand-painted illustrations, pastel sketches and ephemera from Conner’s private collection highlight his illustration process. Correspondence with editors and art directors provide visitors with a glimpse inside the dynamic world of publishing at a time when the advertising industry was at its height and almost entirely on New York’s Madison Avenue. Conner and his “Mad Men” (Madison Avenue) contemporaries perfected the art of the sale and transformed American culture.

“A Family Affair: The Rosenberg Espionage Case”

[podcast src=”” height=”360″ width=”100%” placement=”top” theme=”standard”]Author and physician Jeffrey K. Smith has written works of fiction and non-fiction. His favorite genre is non-fiction, where he has penned 15 books, which represent the “Bringing History Alive Series.” Reading like fast-paced novels, his biographies and chronicles are designed to prove that fact is often stranger and more compelling that fiction.

“A Family Affair: The Rosenberg Espionage Case” is tragic and compelling drama about Atomic Spies that occurred in an era when fear often trumped reason. This is a real-life spy story–one that not only polarized America and much of the world, but also tore a family asunder. More specifically, it pitted a brother against his sister and brother-in-law; one was sentenced to prison and the other two were executed.
