How has the changing landscape of America changed over the centuries and how has art reflect those changes? We hear from Binghamton University Art Museum Director Diane Butler and Curator Tom McDonough about a new exhibit: Topograhies: Changing Conceptions of the American Landscape.
The Binghamton University Art Museum presents two exhibits of works by renowned graphic designer Milton Glaser. Museum Director Diane Butler and curator Blazo Kovacevic talk about how these unique exhibits came to be. “Although Glaser might be best known for his commercial work – the ubiquitous I ❤ NY logo or the psychedelic Bob Dylan album cover – the exhibition features work in which Glaser experiments with pattern and perception. He works out his thoughts graphically in a series of prints of landscapes and images that celebrate modern masters such as Cézanne, Toulouse-Lautrec and Klimt. Milton Glaser: Modulated Patterns is accompanied by a catalogue, published by the Binghamton University Art Museum, which includes an introduction by the curator and an interview with Milton Glaser by Tom McDonough, associate professor of art history at Binghamton University.
The Binghamton University Art Museum is displaying Works on Paper Between the Wars, a collection from Binghamton residents Gil and Deborah Williams. Gil Williams and Museum Director Diane Butler talk about the exhibition, related exhibits, and the historical value of the included works. https://wskg.org/audio/worksonpaper.mp3
