Appleton museum features Time magazine covers

Posted: Updated:
APPLETON (AP) -- An Appleton museum is featuring signed covers of Time magazine in a new exhibition.

The covers came from the late collector Jerry Gottleib.  From 1964 to 1974, Gottleib sent a copy of the covers of the people featured on them for autographs.

More than 250 people responded to his request, and the Gottleib family shared some with The Trout Museum of Art.

According to the museum, Gottleib's greatest challenges were securing signatures for covers featuring more than one person.  Some of his successes included all four of the Beatles as well as the Apollo 11 astronauts.

The exhibit also features Robert Kennedy cover designed by Roy Lichtenstein and dated two weeks before Kennedy's assassination.

The exhibit is called "Moments in TIME" and will be on display through June 29.
