Milton Glaser's SVA: a Legacy of Graphic Design
School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents "Milton Glaser's SVA: A Legacy of Graphic Design," a 50-year retrospective of nearly 100 works created by the legendary designer for the College, where he has been on the faculty since 1960 and currently serves as acting chairman.
The exhibition will include the original artwork for the iconic posters seen by generations of New Yorkers as part of SVA's ongoing subway campaign, preparatory sketches that will be on public view for the first time, and rare printed pieces like the 1963 announcement for the course Glaser taught at SVA with the late art director Henry Wolf.
The exhibition is curated by Steven Heller, design historian and co-chair of the MFA Design Department, and Mirko Ilic, designer and faculty member in the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department.
Beth Kleber, SVA's archivist, researched and compiled the works in the exhibition, which is designed by Francis Di Tommaso, director of the Visual Arts Gallery.
"Milton Glaser's SVA: A Legacy of Graphic Design" will be on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26 Street, New York City, from August 31 - September 26, 2009.
To many, Milton Glaser is synonymous with American graphic design.
He co-founded the revolutionary Pushpin Studios in 1954, founded New York magazine with Clay Felker in 1968, established Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and designed the famous "I LOVE NY" campaign in 1977.
