Historical Context:
Jerry Berta is the owner and artist-in-residence of Diner World in Rockford, Michigan. Diner World consists of two beautifully restored classic American diners: "Rosie's Diner", a 1945 Paramount diner originally located in Little Ferry, New Jersey, and the "Diner Store- An American Art Gallery", (formerly "Uncle Bob's Diner") in Flint, Michigan. The Diner Store features artwork by Jerry and his wife, artist Madeline Kaczmarczyk. Berta designed the Festival of the Arts poster of 1982.
