Helen Federico's Legacy at RIT

The Cary Graphic Arts Collection honors the life and legacy of Helen Federico (Sept. 15, 1921- July 19, 2012). Helen enjoyed a distinguished career as a graphic designer, painter, illustrator, and author. The Cary Collection houses a collection of her work that includes paintings, illustrations, advertisements, and magazine covers for clients such The New Yorker and Fortune. The collection contains some marvelous process work, showing initial sketches, paintings, and the final completed project.
The Cary Collection is truly appreciative of the family’s wish for donations to be given to our library to support the Helen Federico Collection. Please send donations addressed to Steven Galbraith, RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection, 90 Lomb Memorial Drive, Rochester, NY 14623.
