Illustrators 65: Book and Editorial
February 15 - March 18
The Museum of Illustration at the Society of Illustrators is proud to present Illustrators 65, an annual exhibit featuring the most outstanding works of the year by leading contemporary illustrators worldwide. Voted on by a prestigious international jury of renowned illustrators, art directors, and designers, the Annual provides a platform to our global community to express, through illustration, the events and movements of our times. In a year of numerous challenges, documented through artists’ visual narratives, the Annual has become an important archive and reflection of recent history.
The Annual is broken up into two shows. Part Two features work in the Book and Editorial categories. Gold and silver medals were awarded by the jury to the top pieces in each category.
Part Two will be on display February 15 through March 18, 2023. Part One of the Annual will be on display prior to this exhibit from January 11 through February 11, 2023.
Tickets can be purchased online to view the gallery. Walk-ins are also welcome! Entry to museum is free for Society of Illustrator Members.
An Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, January 27. More information will be posted leading up to the event.
