80 Years of New Yorker Cartoons

March 16, 2005 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) – "80 Years of New Yorker Cartoons" will be hosted by Meyerovich Gallery in the heart of Union Square, San Francisco to celebrate The New Yorker’s 80th anniversary. This exciting exhibit will be celebrated with a cocktail reception on Thursday evening, April 7, 2005 from 7-9pm.

An exhibition of classic and contemporary cartoon art from The New Yorker will be on display at San Francisco’s Meyerovich Gallery from April 4 – April 11, 2005. Meyerovich Gallery is the exclusive West Coast venue for this show, which will make additional appearances only in Boston and New York City. The exhibit, “80 Years of New Yorker Cartoons” features more than 60 cartoons from the roughly 68,000 published since the magazine’s launch in 1925. In the past eighty years, The New Yorker’s cartoons have featured many wonderful works of art and social commentary. Also included in this exhibition are over twenty original works of art used for The New Yorker's covers and/or inserts by local Bay Area artists including: Mark Ulriksen, Eric Drooker, Owen Smith, Winston Smith, and George Riemann, as well as a group of limited edition prints from The New Yorker covers.

In conjunction with “80 Years of New Yorker Cartoons” is the celebration of the release of the lavishly produced hardcover “The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker.” Over 2,000 selected cartoons will appear in this hardcover, and all 68,647 cartoons are featured on the two accompanying CD-ROMs. These cartoons were published together for the first time edited by New Yorker cartoon editor Robert Mankoff and with a foreword by editor-in-chief David Remnick.
