DESCRIPTION

In a series of 18 striking images, the words of Jewish luminaries from Maimonides to Susan Sontag are newly interpreted and graphically transformed by renowned artists and designers including Milton Glaser, Carin Goldberg, Seymour Chwast, and Chicago's Art Paul. An initiative of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, Voices & Visions elicits the power of art to communicate great ideas and inspire reflection and conversation.

Noted art historian, critic, and curator Dr. Daniel Belasco will present a talk titled Jewish Graphic Design from the Talmud to Today  at 2 pm. Preceding the program, a free reception begins at 1 pm with designer Art Paul and philanthropist Harold Grinspoon scheduled to attend. MORE>
