New-York Historical Society: "Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorker's Perspective" Reception, February 14, 2019

A grand time with Mort Gerberg and many of his cartoonist friends upon the occasion of the opening of his 50 Year retrospective at the New-York Historical Society.

"Mort Gerberg Cartoons: A New Yorker's Perspective" is on display from February 15 thru May 5, 2019 on the second floor of the New-York Historical Society. The reception was held on the evening of February 14th, on a clear and chilly NYC night.

This is a huge collection of Mort's published work, as well as previously unseen sketchbook sketches. Fantagraphics has published a companion book, MORT GERBERG: ON THE SCENE, with much of the art reproduced. Other Gerberg books and items are available as well.

The reception was big. I had to stand in a long line to hang up my coat. Hundreds of people attended. The whole floor was packed. Mort was man of the hour!
