    Description

    Art Babbitt's Clio Award (Art Babbitt Estate, 1979). First Awarded in 1959, the Clio Award is an annual award that recognizes innovation and creative excellence in advertising, design and communications. The Award was founded by William A. Ross and named after the Greek goddess Clio, as the proclaimer, glorifier, and celebrator of history, great deeds, and accomplishments; it is the highest award given in advertising. After Art Babbitt's film work with Walt Disney and UPA Studios, he went to Graphic Films and then Hanna-Barbera where he became a driving force in television commercial animation. This is Art Babbitt's personal 1979 Clio Hall of Fame Award. The plaque reads "Count Pushkin Vodka Transiberian Express Executive Director: Art Babbitt." The stylish award measures 14" x 5" and is in a 27" x 10" frame. It is interesting to note that this commercial was made along with Richard Williams and Roland B. Wilson. Condition is Very Good. The frame is sold as-is. From the Art Babbitt Archives.
