Vernon Grant’s It Takes a Village

Vernon Grant’s dream to become a New York City artist began when he arrived in the Big Apple in 1932. He rented a studio apartment in Greenwich Village where his vivid illustrations were soon in high demand. His art captivated the attention of millions of people on cereal boxes, magazine covers, playing cards, billboards and a host of other products. The Arts Council of York County presents <i>It Takes a Village</i>, featuring Grant’s favorite subject – Santa Claus – along with his whimsical gnomes and published scenes of winter, on view at the Center for the Arts in Rock Hill, December 5th through 29th.
