Details

Weinberg Memorial Library's Heritage Room will be exhibiting pen and ink portraits of late 19th and early 20th century theatrical personalities drawn between 1905 and 1930 by Scranton's Master Penman Patrick W. Costello. Costello was nationally recognized for his work and operated what we might now consider a graphic arts studio where he created advertising art as well as engrossed congratulatory or testimonial resolutions, diplomas, and other types of work that required a combination of calligraphic lettering and artistic design. 

Art exhibit will run from Feb 5 through Apr 23.
