Client: New-York Historical Society

Project: The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld

Our Role: Fabrication & Installation

Description: The New-York Historical Society approached us to fabricate display cases for their multimedia exhibition The Hirschfeld Century: The Art of Al Hirschfeld. The show, which ran May 22, 2015 – October 12, 2015 was the first comprehensive retrospective of Al Hirschfeld’s work ever shown. Spanning nine decades, this prolific artist’s definitive style of drawing left a lasting impression as he documented key events in popular culture and provided social commentary on the leading arts and political figures of the eras.
