Graphic design legend, Milton Glaser, speaks on all of our favorite topics, Art, Design, Love & Sex, in what will surely be a memorable and thought provoking evening.
Milton Glaser revolutionized the fields of art and design through decades of iconic work including the “I Love New York” logo (and after September 11th, was transformed into I Love NY More Than Ever), the DC Comics “DC bullet” logo, the famous Bob Dylan album cover and the recent MadMen poster. He co-founded New York Magazine, which became the prototype for city magazines and service journalism across the country.
Milton Glaser (b.1929) is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the United States. He has had the distinction of one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. In 2004 he was selected for the lifetime achievement award of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. As a Fulbright scholar, Glaser studied with the painter, Giorgio Morandi in Bologna, and is an articulate spokesman for the ethical practice of design. He opened Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and continues to produce an astounding amount of work in many fields of design to this day.
