January 11, 2017
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts is presenting “Milton Glaser: Sixty Years of Design” in the Weatherhead Gallery of the Mimi and Ian Rolland Art and Visual Communication Center. The exhibit begins on Saturday, January 21 with an opening reception at 6 p.m. in the Weatherhead Gallery, just off Leesburg Road on the USF campus.
From designing the original “I Love New York” logo to creating the identity for the final season of “Mad Men,” Milton Glaser (b. 1929) is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the United States. He has received numerous distinctions including the lifetime achievement award of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Fulbright Association. In 2009, he was the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts award. The Glaser exhibit will run through February 21 and is free and open to the public.
A free public lecture will be presented on Thursday, February 2, at 7:30 p.m. by Sue Walsh in the USF North Campus Auditorium, 2702 Spring Street. Walsh is currently the creative director at SYPartners, NYC and is faculty at the School of Visual Arts. She worked with Milton Glaser for nearly a decade and has maintained an independent practice for over 15 years. The lecture is co-sponsored by the American Advertising Federation of Fort Wayne and the University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts.
The USF School of Creative Arts is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). For more information about exhibits and events, visit art.sf.edu.
