Miggs Burroughs never says “no.” He is a lifelong Westport resident whose award winning graphic art work can be seen all over our town - and beyond.

 

He designed the Westport Town Flag and an Easter Egg for the Reagan White House that now resides in the Smithsonian Institution. He has created hundreds of logos, ads, brochures, and websites for commercial and non-profit clients throughout Fairfield County, including award-winning posters for Save The Children, the American Red Cross and Baskin-Robbins.

His large catalog also includes design work contributed to the Westport Library,
CLASP Homes, STAR, The  Westport Weston Family YMCA, Tiny Miracles, Near and Far Aid, First Night, Levitt Pavilion, Westport Historical Society, Al’s Angels, Embrace Hope (Sandy Hook), Homes with Hope, Westport Arts Center, Westport Young Woman’s League, Westport Country Playhouse, Positive Directions, Save Westport Now, Westport Rotary, Wakeman Town Farms, March of Dimes and Project Return.

 

Burroughs is a 1967 Carnegie Tech Drama Department graduate (now Carnegie Mellon University).  Five years later he was selling Pop Art style paintings and prints in Boston and New York galleries that won him a commission for a Wall Street lobby installation, a
U.S. Postage Stamp, and four covers for TIME Magazine - including the one for Richard Nixon’s resignation.

 

More recently, he has exhibited his cutting edge lenticular imagery work in many one-man shows and has won several “Best in Show” awards. He was also honored to have Westport’s Schools select one of these images for its Permanent Art Collection.

He is a member of the Westport Arts Center and the Silvermine Arts Center and is represented by Southport Galleries in Southport, CT.

 

Mr. Burroughs has been previously honored as a Paul Harris Fellow by the Westport Rotary, as one of the YMCA’s Faces of Achievement, and as Volunteer of the Year by CLASP of Westport, and STAR of Norwalk, among others.

 

In 2012, his first book, “The What If Book of Questions” was published and received with glowing reviews. Click here to visit the "What If" website
