Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition at 92nd Street Y
92nd Street Y is one of New York City’s most storied cultural institutions. Since 1939, 92Y’s Unterberg Poetry Center has bridged poets and writers to their readers to ensure that there will always be a venue for the next great creative mind to blossom.
The Poetry Center was built on the motto “Love the Words,” which legendary poet Dylan Thomas asked of his actors before the 1953 premiere of Under Milk Wood at 92Y. Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition honors the influential Welsh poet’s life and work.
Celebrating the centenary of Thomas’s birth, Dylan Thomas in America gathers photos, letters, postcards, manuscripts and drawings from archives around the world to chronicle the great Welsh poet’s legendary trips to the United States between 1950 and his tragic death in 1953. A collaboration with Duggal Visual Solutions, this exhibition is made possible by a generous gift from the Sidney E. Frank Foundation, as well as support from the British Council and Welsh government.
Duggal is a proud partner of Dylan Thomas in America–A Centennial Exhibition, with associates Steve Arnesen and Melisa Salas offering design consultation and coordinating all visual elements and logistics for the exhibition. After producing 92Y’s 75th Anniversary Celebration in 2013, Duggal was entrusted to again provide studio photography of original documents, along with scanning, retouching, printing, framing and banner graphics.
