Destination Paradise: 100 Years of Catalina Advertising Design
Feb 1 – Apr 22 all-day

The continuing exhibition “Destination Paradise: 100 Years of Catalina Advertising Design” looks at the art of luring visitors to Catalina. From hand drawn and painted signs to modern posters, the evolution of advertising the island through slogans, jingles and captivating designs is fully explored. Nostalgic and fun this exhibition includes images of early island attractions, the work of Otis and Dorothy Shepard – who cohesively branded the island under William Wrigley Jr. – and the continued branding of a paradise destination. For more information, call the Catalina Island Museum at 310-510-2414, ​or visit www.CatalinaMuseum.org.
