The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art's summer exhibit, which will take place May 10 to August 3, will feature the work of Bob Peak, who designed posters for movies such as My Fair Lady, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Apocalypse Now.

Robert "Bob" Peak (1927–1992) was an American illustrator best known for creating the modern movie poster. His versatile style used incisive draftsmanship, bold colors, and rich textures to produce dynamic, eye-catching compositions. This exhibition features original art covering the full range of his career—from the famous posters he designed for movies to his work for a variety of national clients, including Time magazine, TV Guide, and Sports Illustrated.
