Clifford Singer at Lincoln Center, New York and Tokyo

It was 1983 in New York’s Soho and business was really moving for Clifford Singer’s art career. After doing research on where Singer could go with his printmaking, he approached Delmar Hendricks, Director of the Lincoln Center Poster Collection. This was not an easy sale to close and Singer continually approached Delmar Hendricks for eight years until 1990, making a phone call on a Wednesday afternoon.

C.S. “Hi Delmar! Hi Delmar!, How are you? This is Clifford Singer.
D.H. “Hello Clifford, I was thinking of you and need to come down to your studio.” The next day Delmar arrived and stated:
D.H. “these new artworks make me happy…. We have a new project Mostly Mozart Festival In Tokyo and these works fit perfectly, as I see the rising sun as part of your image. Let me get Vera List and we will be back next week.”

This was the first international poster published by Lincoln Center. Singer worked closely with Charles Cardinale and Joel Sgro who were the production team for Lincoln Center. Singer was instrumental in devising a materials and production plan for the sculpture including personally assembling the 46 pieces. In addition, Singer personally did the lettering on the poster as he is also a calligrapher.
