100 Year-Old Illustrator Displays His Vintage Ad Artworks In Solo Exhibition

At 100 year-old, McCauley ‘Mac’ Conner, who is credited as one of the “original Mad Men”, will have his own solo exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York. 

Titled ‘Mac Conner: A New York Life’, the exhibition will feature original artworks by Conner for clients like United Airlines, General Motors and Greyhound Lines. 

Other than his illustrations, visitors can also expect an exclusive preview of Conner’s work process through behind-the-scene photographs and draft sketches. 

Despite being famous during his days, curator of the museum Terrence Brown said that “the influences (of Conner’s work) are brief and in most cases fleeting” but “the lasting effect is nil” because “that has always been the nature of illustration, it reflects its day and moves on”. 

The exhibition will be on display at the museum from now till 19 September 2015.
