Chapman-Hall House Celebrates Local Illustrator Jake Day With Dish Towel Project
The Lincoln County Historical Association’s Chapman-Hall House Museum in Damariscotta is launching a new fundraising project to celebrate the art of Maurice “Jake” Day and support the historic site.
The stewardship committee of this antique cloak sells cotton tea towels printed with a pen and ink drawing of Jake Day.
Day is best known for his work on the Walt Disney film “Bambi”. Before and after his time at Disney, he was an illustrator of children’s books and popular magazines. Locally, he is known for his whimsical paintings of woodland animals, seascapes, and paintings of the Katahdin region.
The Stewardship Committee thanks Dan and Sandi Day for permission to use Jake Day’s drawing. Towels are priced at $ 8 and can be ordered by email at [email protected] or by calling (207) 832-5759.
