Mel Silverman was one of America's most respected artists during the late 1950's and early 1960's. Equally accomplished as an original printmaker, painter, illustrator and writer, Mel Silverman received his Bachelor of Fine Arts and his B.A.E. from the Art Institute of Chicago. The Institute then awarded him a Fellowship in 1955 which enabled him to work and travel in Europe for a period of one year.
The first one man exhibition of Mel Silverman's art was held in New York in 1956. During the following ten years he also exhibited extensively in Chicago, Denver and elsewhere. Today, Mel Silverman's original woodcuts and paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the University of Minnesota, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis and the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
