Dave Calver (davecalver.com), born in Rochester, NY, in 1954, is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. New Yorkers are familiar with his iconic snow-people used for years to promote The Lincoln Center BID’s Annual Winter’s Eve Concert.
Over the years, strap hangers’ NY commutes have been enlivened by Dave’s three MTA Art Posters. One of these, NYC Bling, went on to receive a major Silver Medal Award from the Society of Illustrators. Calver’s artwork can also be seen in Taschen’s noted book “100 Illustrators’ where he is featured among the world’s top talent; he has also graced the pages of Time, Newsweek, and New York Magazine. The collection exhibited in The Light Box Gallery at The Betsy Hotel includes work spanning the entirety of his career, including selections from his recently published graphic novel, Limbo Lounge (which is available for purchase at our front desk).
