Opening March 27th, 2015 and running through April 26th, 2015, the exhibit will feature many pages of one of a kind correspondence, a plethora of the publications in which Art Young appeared, and numerous pieces of original art - including works from the extensive collection of Glenn Bray (author of the beautiful comic-art tome “The Blighted Eye”), as well as the jewel of the exhibit - the original large-format pen and ink illustration of “Capitalism” (also referred to as “The Last Supper”). “Capitalism” is considered by many to be one of the top-three most famous works of Art Young and was included in the Contemporary American Artists exhibit at the immortal 1939 New York World’s Fair."
