ROXBURY — “Thirty Odd Drawings and Way Too Many Copies of ‘Blitt’ (The Book),” an exhibit of drawings by cartoonist and illustrator Barry Blitt, will open at the Minor Memorial Library, 23 South St., Roxbury, on Nov. 18 with a reception for the public from 2 to 4 p.m.
The show will continue during regular library hours, when the Community Room is not in use for another program, through Dec. 30. The library is open Mondays from noon to 7 p.m., Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The library will be closed Nov. 23, 24 and 25 for Thanksgiving and Dec. 25 for Christmas.
Since 1992, Blitt has contributed illustrations and more than 100 covers to The New Yorker, including “Deluged,” which won the 2006 Cover of the Year award, given by the American Society of Magazine Editors, and “The Politics of Fear,” a finalist for the same award in 2009. His drawings have also appeared in Vanity Fair, Time, Rolling Stone, The Atlantic and The New York Times. His work for children includes “The 39 Apartments of Ludwig van Beethoven” and “Once Upon a Time, the End (Asleep in 60 Seconds).”
