Sep 7, 2018

From a quick stint as a window designer for Macy’s to a renowned illustrator whose work has appeared in Lincoln Center and on the pages of Vanity Fair, Playboy, Time, The New York Times and more, Dave Calver’s 40-plus-year career continues to thrive. The former Rochester resident is working on a horror film among other projects and recently released a graphic novel called Limbo Lounge. It’s the latter that brings him to Rochester this week for a conversation and book signing at the Rochester Contemporary Art Center. Iconic illustrator Dave Calver joins this edition of Need to Know to talk more about his creative career and his unique take on purgatory in his new work.
