Looking Back, 1950 – 1959

This Bohemian Night image is one of the silk-screened posters that the Art Association used to advertise their Bohemian Night shows. The Whittier Art Association formed a partnership with the Whittier Civic Light Opera, and what began as some humorous skits, performed in 1952, ended up as a very well attended annual event that lasted more than ten years.  

Through the 1950s, the Whittier Art Gallery exhibited monthly art exhibits, and promoted Bohemian Night performances, as a way to raise funds to enlarge the gallery.
