Cartoonist Frank Galasso Unveils New Warwick Art

Monday, November 26, 2012

 

Beloved Rhode Island cartoonist Frank Galasso has turned his pen to the state's second-largest city--Warwick--and he'll officially "deliver" his illustrated treatment of the city to Mayor Scott Avedisian today in a special ceremony.

Mayor Avedisian is "thrilled" to be receiving Galasso's tribute that "helps preserve the rich history and helps promote the future of Warwick," and sources say there are plans in the works for a mural version to be installed at TF Green Airport in Warwick.

Galasso, well-known for his sports and entertainment cartoons and illustrations that have appeared in not only the Providence Journal, but also the Boston Globe and the Los Angeles Times, began creating lithographs based on Rhode Island cultures and places in 1999 with a "Memories of McCoy" piece for the Pawtucket Red Sox. Within weeks, he began work on a commemorative lithograph for the 1999 Calder Cup Champion Providence Bruins. By the end of the year, he'd released "The History of the Rhode Island Reds," which paid tribute to many hockey fans' fond memories of the old Rhode Island Auditorium in Providence.

Beyond sports, Galasso has created lithographs including The History of Rocky Point, Oakland Beach, Federal Hill, Icons of Rhode Island, and even one about New Hampshire.

The Warwick lithograph is for sale on Galasso's website for $24.95, as are many more of his works. For more information, go here.
