Paula Scher Master Class on Design, Branding and Identity with Ellen Lupton
Paula Scher: Twenty-Five Years at the Public, A Love Story
Thu, Sep 17, 7 pm, $20

"Why should I correct my mistakes when all of the innovation exists in the mistake?"

This kind of rebellious thinking has made Paula Scher one of the world's most celebrated and influential graphic designers working today. Her master class offers a rare opportunity to understand her thinking and creative processes that have resulted in landmark identities for projects such as the Highline, MoMA, Jazz at Lincoln Center and many more. Taking her 25-year relationship with New York's The Public Theater as its focus, the artist, designer and Pentagram partner will reveal how she finds the right ingredients to make a design relevant and lasting; how intuition can be a designer's most important tool; and how she has kept the love alive with The Public through decades of invention, regression, success, failure, getting fired, getting rehired, and redesigning a brand identity three times over.

Talking with Ellen Lupton, curator of contemporary design at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, Paula Scher's master class offers inspiration and empowerment for anyone working at the intersection of commerce and creativity. Paula Scher's newest publication Paula Scher: Twenty-Five Years at the Public, A Love Story is now available.

Online Class

Having performed on hundreds of film scores and TV productions, Hollywood veteran Andrew Muson brings an insider's perspective to the magic of music in the movies. During the days of silent film, pianos and organs accompanied Moving Pictures in theaters. With the advent of "talkies" and release of The Jazz Singer in 1927, which featured synchronous dialog and singing with a musical score, the film score became an art form. Films are now scored with every conceivable type of music-from symphony orchestras to esoteric, indigenous, electronic sounds, and pop music. The series explores the history, art, and science of film music as seen through the composers' lens, with videos that feature the fabulous film scores from some of the greatest movies ever shown on the big screen. Class will meet weekly.
