May 9: Mort Künstler retrospective

A retrospective exhibition exploring the career of renowned artist and illustrator Mort Künstler opens in Winchester’s Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) on May 9 and runs through Aug. 2.

Best known for his paintings of the Civil War and countless covers for adventure books and magazines, Künstler created the illustration for the famous 1976 MAD magazine cover (he signed it as “Mutz”), which parodied the "Jaws" movie poster by featuring the magazine’s mascot, Alfred E. Neuman, swimming from a shark.

Künstler will be at the MSV for a signing event on Saturday, May 9, from 11 to
