  • A Mile and a Half of Lines: The Art of James Thurber

    August 24, 2019 – March 15, 2020

Presented by:
Columbus Museum of Art
About the Event:

Celebrating the 125th anniversary of James Thurber’s birth, A Mile and a Half of Lines showcases the drawings of James Thurber, Columbus’ native son and one of America’s best-known 20th-century writers. His depictions changed the nature of cartooning as he drew spontaneously with child-like abandon. The drawing often came first and then the caption. The exhibition will include his work for The New Yorker, his illustrations for his own and others’ books, ad campaigns, and children’s illustration. After a childhood accident in which he lost sight in one eye, the eyesight in his other eye deteriorated as well. The exhibition includes examples of this later work and the magnifying gadget that allowed him to continue working. Sections of the exhibition will include drawings depicting: Signs of the Times (prohibition, the Great Depression, and the Lost Generation); The Bestiary in Me (the animal kingdom); and Columbustown (including OSU football).
