Center for the Arts Presents "Bob Peak: Master of the Movie Poster"
The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art's summer exhibit, which will take place May 10 to August 3, will feature the work of Bob Peak, who designed posters for movies such as My Fair Lady, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Apocalypse Now. A reception celebrating the exhibit's opening will take place Saturday, May 10, at 2 p.m.
Robert "Bob" Peak (1927–1992) was an American illustrator best known for creating the modern movie poster. His versatile style used incisive draftsmanship, bold colors, and rich textures to produce dynamic, eye-catching compositions. This exhibition features original art covering the full range of his career—from the famous posters he designed for movies such as My Fair Lady, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Apocalypse Now to his work for a variety of national clients, including Time magazine, TV Guide, and Sports Illustrated.
The Weisman Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and one hour prior to most performances through intermission. Admission is free. Please call (310) 506-4851 for more information or visit the Center for the Arts website.
