Embark on a visual odyssey through the world of mid-century modern graphic design and typography at ‘ARTVERTISING.’ Curated by Mike Danzis for Old Souled, this exhibition unveils a glimpse into the rich tapestry of design history through the lens of David Trooper and his personal archives. Delve into the 1960’s as you witness David’s legacy as Art Director for WOR-TV in New York City, the creation of his renowned ‘Trooper Roman’ font, and his transition to become art director for Reader’s Digest.

Explore personal artifacts, ephemera, foundry catalogs, and examples of advertising design that shaped the visual landscape before computers. Travel back in time for a moment to discover where art meets advertising in a celebration of historic creativity and innovation.
