The Museum of Illustration
128 E. 63rd St., New York, NY 10023
The Museum of American Illustration was established in 1981, under the stewardship of [Society of Illustrators] President John Witt. Today the permanent collection includes nearly 2500 works by such artists as Norman Rockwell, Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, James Montgomery Flagg, Bob Peak and Bernie Fuchs. The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) transferred its assets in August 2012 to the Society, which has continued the MoCCA Fest.
It's not to be confused with the National Museum of American Illustration in Newport, Rhode Island.
