JCC 100 Limited Edition Posters 

Own a Piece of History by Renowned Artist

Paul Palnik

Many of you know renowned local artist, Paul Palnik, for his unique, spiritually-themed, cartoon-style works of art that are featured in the National Cartoon Collection in New York City and the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum of The Ohio State University. His witty and detailed pen-and-ink drawings are world-famous, yet he calls Bexley home and is a long-time JCC member.

But did you know that Paul Palnik has created a new cartoon poster in honor of the JCC’s 100th Anniversary? That’s right; Palnik has brought his charm, wit, and spiritual yet sardonic approach to art to the JCC 100 Anniversary celebration. This heartfelt, original creation on display in the JCC lobby features 100 memories of the JCC, humorously reflecting on everything from JCC swim lessons to the old bowling alley to the Hoover ropes course.

What are your favorite memories of the JCC? You are guaranteed to find them in this poster, thoughtfully and carefully crafted by Palnik using memorable submissions from members like you. Now, you, too, can own a piece of history. These limited edition prints are signed and numbered; order yours now for one of 100 unique JCC 100 posters.

And, if you want a more personalized version of these comic strip-style posters, an additional set of posters have been created, each featuring a blank, individual square where your personal, JCC story can be added by none other than the artist himself. Palnik will personally come to the JCC to create a one-of-a-kind design just for you to enjoy and pass down from generation to generation, just like the JCC.
