The Milton Glaser Design Study Center and Archives + the SVA Archives are unique resources to study the work of the great designers, illustrators and art directors who’ve taught and studied at SVA. The collections allow visitors to examine the design and illustration process, from conception to completion, through original sketches, artwork, and photographs, as well as the final posters and publications, from more than twenty giants of art and design:
Ivan Chermayeff & Tom Geismar
The Archives is also a place to study the history of SVA, from its subway poster campaign, to its groundbreaking exhibitions by professional and student artists, to the faculty and programs dating back its founding in 1947. Students just need to contact Archives staff to make an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.592.2636.
