Renowned artist, graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister to lecture Tuesday


New York-based graphic designer and artist Stefan Sagmeister will speak Tuesday as part of this year’s Stephen L. Barstow Art & Design Lecture Series.

Sagmeister is a revered figure in the world of art, known for his visionary corporate branding and advertising work, as well as his more creative pursuits like exhibition curation and environmental design.

Aside from installations, Sagmeister’s art can be seen on album covers including Lou Reed’s “Ecstasy,” The Rolling Stones’ “Bridges to Babylon,” and the Brian Eno/David Byrne collaboration “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.”

Sagmeister operates his own design firm, Sagmeister & Walsh, with his design partner Jessica Walsh. The company’s pieces have been commissioned by corporations, museums, publications and non-profit organizations.

The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in the Charles V. Park Library auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
