Alvin Lustig (1993 AIGA Medalist) and Elaine Lustig Cohen (2011 AIGA Medalist) created a distinctive body of design work that melded the ideas of European modernism with a uniquely American approach to graphic design. In partnership with the College of Visual Arts in Saint Paul, Minnesota, AIGA presents The Lustigs: A Cover Story—an exhibition which includes nearly 500 of their book, magazine and catalog covers designed and illustrated between 1933 and 1961. AIGA is hosting the exhibition from December 10, 2012 - February 15, 2013 at the AIGA National Design Center in New York City. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
A conversation between Elaine Lustig Cohen and Steven Heller takes place on Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. This conversation about life with Alvin and her own career with whom she co-authored the book, Born Modern: The Life and Design of Alvin Lustig, coincides with the exhibition at the AIGA National Headquarters The Lustigs: A Cover Story in partnership with the College of Visual Arts.
