About the Society of Illustrators
In 1954, the U.S. Air Force began sending members around the world to dcument its activites. The program continues today and thousands of paintings by Society members have been contributed to the collection over the years. A similar program is now in place for the U.S. Coast Guard with yearly exhibitions and dinners held at Society headquarters.
The first scholarship fund was established in the early 50s and, in 1959, Norman Rockwell became the first member of the Hall of Fame. That same year, The First Annual Exhibition juried by Bob Peak, Bradbury Thompson and Stevan Dohanos, among others opened with 350 original works of art and the first Illustrator's Annual.
Other notable events at the Society were the 1969 filming of "Loving" with George Segal portraying a frustrated illustrator (proceeds from this filming were used to renovate and modernize the Gallery); the "Anti-War Show in 1972; the 75th anniversary in 1976 - Homage of Howard Pyle, father of American Iillustration and the Bicentennial Show at The New York Historical Society with over 1,000 works. 1981 saw the establishment of the Museum of American Illustration. Today the museum possesses 1500 works of art by such legendary artists as Rockwell, Pyle, Wyeth, Kent, Peak, Fuchs, and Brad Holland.
Our involvement in Illustration, contribution to community service and student scholarship, annual exhibition and recognition of the greats in the field of illustration, welfare fund and stand on legal issues, sketch classes, lecture series, and social gatherings prove our concern and commitmentto support the field of illustration - past, present and future.
