In conjunction with the unveiling of Roy Lichtenstein's Time Square Mural in the 42nd and Broadway subway station, Michell-Innes & Nash and the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation will exhibit the primary and auxiliary materials for the mural . The exhibition will include the 53 foot full scale black and white maquette of the mural; preparatory drawings and collages; various source materials including comic books; and related paintings and sculpture by the artist. In addition to photographs of the artist at work on the mural and collage, the show features many works that have never before been on public view, providing a unique glimpse into Lichtenstein's creative process. The show will be accompanied by a catalog that includes an essay by Scott Rothkopf, a Harvard University scholar, and a short story by Rick Moody commissioned for the catalog.
