Mark Bird, nephew of St. James Court Art Show founder, Malcolm Bird, and C. M. “Sonny” Whittle, designed and released the first official St. James Court Art Show poster in 1981 to celebrate its 25th anniversary. This was the first of seven limited edition screen prints, spanning the years 1981-1987. Taking a break from the 20-year run of the St. James Court Art Show Poster Competition, Mark Bird was commissioned to produce the 60th anniversary print. St. James Court Art Show is honored to gift both original prints to The Filson Historical Society, so that these pieces of Art Show history can be enjoyed by future generations.
