"Illustrators 55" has been organized by the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators.
The Society of Illustrators Annual Travel Show features 40 pieces of the most outstanding works created throughout the year. Based on a juried competition and originally exhibited at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York City, this selection showcases the best illustrations and goes on to tour around the country.
The show is broken up into seven categories: Sequential/Series, Uncommissioned, Editorial, Book, Advertising, Institutional, and Moving Image. Works on display have appeared in magazine and newspaper publications, adult and children’s books, calendars, theater posters, fashion labels, cd and album art, and advertisements for major corporations.
The Illustrators Annual is open to artists worldwide, and a jury of professional illustrators and art directors determines which pieces from thousands submitted will be displayed in the show.
