By James Lomuscio

UPDATE (adds run extended) Westport’s golden age as an arts community came to life today as the artists’ children recalled what it was like growing up with parents who created hundreds of covers for The New Yorker. Image

The presentation at the Westport Historical Society (WHS) highlighted its exhibit “Cover Story: The New Yorker in Westport” that has an extended run through July 5. It was co-emceed by Dianne Wildman, former News-12 Cablevision editorial director, and historian Eve Potts.

The exhibit showcases many of the 767 covers produced by 17 New Yorker artists living in and around Westport from 1925 to 1989.

“They were truly unheralded in their own day, and we have a special need to celebrate their creativity,” said Potts.
