Exhibition Celebrates 30th Anniversary of The Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, 1985–2015

What: The exhibit "thirty" reveals the many hidden gems amongst the more than 50,000 pieces of design ephemera in The Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design & Typography’s collection.

Made to recreate the archive in the gallery space, visitors will be able to see highlights from the collection arranged in flat files, the same ones used by researchers in the center. The work on view will span two centuries and several continents, including several one-of-a-kind, rarely seen pieces of design, like the pilot issue of Life magazine, a sketch of a logo for MTV and a 19th century bill of sale.

Ongoing Exhibition: Sept. 11 – Oct. 3
Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Sunday noon – 5 p.m.

Where: 41 Cooper Gallery at The Cooper Union, Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.
