Paul Rand: The Art of Design

@ Wright Auction

1440 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60642

Opening Tuesday, September 11th, from 5:30PM - 7PM

On view through Thursday, September 13th

Join us on September 11th for a special reception featuring guest speaker, Philip Burton. Burton, professor and founding chair at the School of Design at the University of Illinois at Chicago and an independent design consultant, worked alongside Paul Rand in the 1980s at Yale’s summer design program in Brissago, Switzerland.

Few artists can revolutionize an approach to an art form, but Paul Rand did just that when he began designing graphics in the 1930s. From his early advertisements to iconic logos, Rand produced a graphic design style that would inspire and influence the postwar design ideology. On September 13th, Wright presents over 300 works from the collection of Paul Rand ranging from never before seen paintings and graphics to his personal collection of fine art and design that served as inspiration throughout his pioneering career.
