Listen: Milton Glaser Talks ‘Global Dying’

Unbeige - Wed, 08/06/2014 - 21:32

“It’s easy to describe. It’s just a black dot with a little bit of green at the bottom,” said Milton Glaser when asked to translate his latest graphic design project for radio listeners. “Either Earth is dying or it’s beginning to grow again. My preference would be that it was beginning to grow again, but for the moment I have no evidence of that.” Glaser appeared today on WNYC’s The Brian Lehrer Show to discuss “It’s not warming, it’s dying,” his new campaign to bring awareness to the potentially world-destroying force of what is best known by the rosy-sounding terms “global warming” and “climate change.” As for how the black-to-green gradient orb could stand alone, in the form of a button, and still convey the message, Glaser explained, “In the relationship between dark and light, there’s always something that people implicitly know.”

Museum Masterpieces Head Outdoors with Art Everywhere’s U.S. Debut

Unbeige - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 13:13

Art Everywhere US Times Square rendering, featuring Chuck Close’s Phil (1969, Whitney Museum of American Art) and (bottom) Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks (1942, The Art Institute of Chicago).

Can’t make it to a museum this August? Fear not. The art is coming to you thanks to Art Everywhere U.S., an extensive outdoor art show highlighting the nation’s artistic heritage. Throughout the month, images of 58 selected U.S. artworks are being projected on billboards and public spaces such as buses, trains, airports, and movie theatres across the U.S. “This is an unconventional program to promote museum experiences and to encourage the discovery of art history so it becomes part of everyday life,” said Maxwell Anderson, director of the Dallas Museum of Art, at yesterday’s kickoff event. “The goal is to continue the enthusiasm every summer.”

Inspired by the success of the 2013 Art Everywhere UK campaign, Anderson enlisted the participation of four other major U.S. museums: New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, Washington D.C.’s National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Aside from the five partnering museums, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) was also instrumental in launching the initiative, which marks the organization’s largest public service campaign to date.

Milton Glaser Versus Global Warming

Unbeige - Mon, 08/04/2014 - 20:54

If you, too, had the best of intentions but just couldn’t manage to sit through the PowerPoint presentation-plus-Al-Gore-on-a-plane-B-roll that is An Inconvenient Truth, Milton Glaser has boiled down “global warming” and “climate change” into a new campaign that calls out these terms as the clumsy euphemisms they are. The bottom line: “It’s not warming, it’s dying.”

With his signature inform-and-delight tactics, Glaser pairs this grim yet clear-eyed slogan with a roiling green orb that suggests the planet Earth viewed from space—as its expanse of life-sustaining territory recedes into darkness. On Friday the message debuted as a billboard at New York’s School of Visual Arts, where Glaser serves as a faculty member and acting chairman of the board (look for the billboard on the western exterior wall of SVA’s East 23rd Street building). Spread the word—and the orb—in button form: available in $5 sets of five here. SVA also plans to distribute free buttons on college campuses nationwide.

The West Elm-ification of Gracie Mansion

Unbeige - Mon, 08/04/2014 - 12:14

Meticulous historic preservation of a landmark interior meets…West Elm? (If you listen carefully, you can hear interior designer Jamie Drake sobbing quietly in the corner, near the lone pair of Schumacher velvet-upholstered John Boone chairs that has not been replaced by beanbag poufs.) Such is the worlds-collide aesthetic ushered in by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his brood. Last week the family moved from Brooklyn to Gracie Mansion, the mayoral residence nestled on the banks of the East River in Manhattan, but not before making a pit stop at West Elm. The Williams Sonoma-owned purveyor of artisan-inflected midcentury homegoods donated $65,000 of Capiz Orb pendant lights (pictured), sofas, desks, chairs, and pillows to the de Blasios–chump change compared to the $7 million of private funds made available for the Bloomberg administration’s Drake-led restoration. In an editorial that appeared in yesterday’s New York Times, writer Alexandra Lange considers “The Mayor’s Showroom” and why it might be preferable to live in a museum after all. God save the Zuber wallpaper.

Quote of Note | Takashi Murakami

Unbeige - Fri, 08/01/2014 - 21:51

“I have this idea for a sweet comedy about death. A middle-aged author of e-books, with middling sales, retreats deep into the mountains of Japan to build a grave for his recently deceased father. After getting scammed out of all of his money, he falls into despair, but for some unknown reason he is visited by a savior in the form of a middle-aged woman. And then his divorced wife from ten years ago appears unexplainably too. Then this young woman with whom he spent a single night in a club many years ago is being treated for an incurable disease in the mountainside sanatorium, and she comes to him for emotional support. I’d love to do that story.”

-Artist Takashi Murakami discussing his filmmaking aspirations in a recent interview. Also on his wishlist? “Some form of a collaboration with J.J. Abrams.”
