High Society
The Society of Illustrators, located in a swanky townhouse in NYC, dates back to the time when Illustrators where taken seriously and wore top hats and tails. The Society, with its gentlemen’s club air, is a musuem, a bar, and host to lively life model sessions every Tuesday a 6:30.

While some events require memembership, the public lectures are a wonderful way to mingle with Art Directors and see other illustrations not not chained to a drawing table. The Spring Lecture series starts in April, http://www.societyillustrators.org/exhibition_competition/lecture05.html
