The Hill Museum of Arts is opening Summer of 2013.
Krikko Obbott has realized his vision of creating a museum to accommodate his mammoth pencil drawings, among them, the 20x15 feet original drawing of New York “The Super Big Apple”. Described by the New York Times as “more than a map,” and the Hartford Courant as “where architecture intersects with fine arts, “The Super Big Apple” was first unveiled at the Sky Scraper Museum on 44 Wall Street in Lower Manhattan in 1998, then at the New Haven City Hall along with the New Haven drawing which also stands at 20x10 feet by Mayor John DeStefano in 1999.
The New York drawing has been featured on many television shows and documentaries and on the motion picture “Fighting.” Thousands of prints have been sold to collectors and tourists around the world via New York City, where the drawing is a draw at most tourist centers including the Statue of Liberty, The united Nations, Times Square, and Fifth Avenue.
The museum is located at 210 West Street, New Haven, Connecticut 06519.
