Susan Gold, executive director of the Westport Historical Society, addresses today’s opening reception of the exhibit “Cover Story: The New Yorker in Westport.” Between 1925 and 1989, 16 New Yorker artists living in and around Westport-Weston produced 761 covers for The New Yorker. Some 44 of the covers actually depict Westport scenes. The exhibit focuses on the influence of The New Yorker’s “idea man” turned Art Editor, James Geraghty, who–with wife Eva–first lived on Rayfield Road in Westport. Some of Geraghty’s relatives are behind Gold. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
