A panel of graphic designers gather to remember Milton Glaser A’51. Glaser, a luminary in the art of graphic design, had an outsized impact on those in his field and beyond. Join us for a discussion of his vast body of work as we honor his incredible legacy.
Registration is required. This event, sponsored by The Cooper Union and Brooklyn Brewery, premieres on YouTube and a link will be sent the morning of the program.
Following his graduation in 1951 Glaser, with several of his Cooper classmates, co-founded Push Pin Studios, a graphic design studio that helped define the modern era, before setting out on his own. He was a designer with a conscience who used his wit and visual acuity for campaigns for the World Health Organization’s Special Programme on AIDS, the Arthritis Foundation, and the United Nations among other non-profit clients. A Trustee Emeritus and former faculty member at Cooper Union, his work is also part of several permanent collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2009 Glaser was recognized for a lifetime of extraordinary work when he received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. He remained highly active in graphic design well into his 80’s, and spoke about his career in The Cooper Union’s Great Hall in 2017.
