1992 Chicago World's Fair 1984 Jack Higgins Orig Editorial Art Santa Maria 1893 $99.95

This is the original artwork by Jack Higgins for his Chicago Sun-Times editorial cartoon dated 1984 dealing with the proposed 1992 Chicago World's Fair which would have been held to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Christopher Columbus landing in America (and also the 100th anniversary of the 1893 Columbian Exposition). The artwork shows the Santa Maria, the last of three ships, veering off a rock outcropping in the water (Labeled "Alternate Site bid"). A man on the ship says "Sorry, Ald. Stone, but your idea just won't float!". (Checking the internet I found that Chicago 50th Ward Alderman Bernard Stone was part of a group that had developed an alternate site than the one approved as part of the original Bureau of International Expositions 1992 Chicago bid approval.) The Bureau of International Expositions had approved co-World's Fairs in 1992 in Seville, Spain and Chicago, Illinois. By 1985 Chicago abandoned its plans for the 1992 World's Fair for various reasons, including the State of Illinois withholding funding. The artwork measures approx. 12-1/2" x 17-1/2". This is the original artwork that Jack Higgins created. On the back you can see some markings / notes made by Sun-Times editors. The artwork is in good condition - there are a few small marks/smudges on the art - there is a small (1/2") crease in the upper right hand corner - there is an "X" written along the right border - there is a small number written in the lower left hand corner - on the back there is some transfer from other art that was stored underneath it. A NICE, ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECE OF EDITORIAL ARTWORK / 1992 CHICAGO WORLD'S FAIR HISTORY THAT WOULD LOOK GREAT FRAMED! When packed, this will ship at the 2 pound rate - check the postage calculator. Jack Higgins has worked at the Chicago Sun-Times for over 35 years and won a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning in 1989. Check out my listings for a few other cartoons by Jack Higgins. Combine purchases to save on postage. If you want more than one item, e-mail me and I can send an updated invoice with combined postage. I have additional Higgins cartoons that are not listed dating from 1980 to 2012. If you are looking for a particular subject, President, Chicago politician, theme, foreign country, etc. let me know and I'll see if I have an editorial cartoon related to it.
