AL HIRSCHFELD: AN ARTISTIC LEGACY BY JOSHUA SHERMAN Timothy Daly, Crystal Bernard, Thomas Haden Church, David Schramm, Rebecca Schull, Tony Shalhoub, Steven Weber and Amy Yasbeck in Wings, 1996 © The Al Hirschfeld Foundation, Tim Daly performed in the Dorset Theatre Festival production of Downstairs, along with his sister Tyne Daly, in 2017. For nine decades, Al Hirschfeld’s art defined the world of the performing arts primarily through his drawings of productions on Broadway and in Hollywood. He captured the first half century of television and recorded more musicians than any record, CD, or mp3. Now, for a limited time, a unique gallery of his drawings and prints comes to Manchester. The Al Hirschfeld Foundation, in partnership with Art Manchester and THE MILL in East Arlington, presents a pop-up gallery of some of the legendary artist’s pieces in the center of town. 64 STRATTON MAGAZINE | WWW.STRATTON MAGAZINE.COM
