The iconic Max’s Art Supplies sign came down for the final time this afternoon.
And — in a reprise of the famed 1981 photo, showing 100 Westport artists gathered in front of their favorite store — Dave Matlow took a similar image today.
Shirley Mellor — Max’s widow, and the owner — is standing in the blue “Max’s 50th” shirt, directly between the “A” and the “X.” Next to her, on the left, is longtime employee Nina Royce.
There are plenty of other famed faces here. Who else can you spot? (Click or hover over the photo to enlarge.)
