Illustrator vs. Artist — 11 a.m.

What defines an illustrator vs. an artist? Maynard Dixon, Paul Calle, and Norman Rockwell were considered both – and examples of their work can be found in exhibitions throughout the museum. But what about Charles Russell and Charles Schulz? Thomas Nast and Tom Lovell? Is illustration considered fine art, applied art, or decorative art? Award-winning artist and author Chris Gall, an internationally recognized illustrator, speaks to the differences as well as the parallels between an illustrator and an artist.
