An Evening with John Massey

An Evening With John Massey

Next Tuesday evening, 3/24, the Chicago Design Museum in collaboration with AIGA Chicago and the Society of Typographic Arts will be presenting “An Evening with John Massey,” a book release event at the Arts Club of Chicago to honor a Chicago graphic design legend.

John Massey is a design legend at the forefront of the modernist movement in American design. He is an AIGA medalist and was director of design and corporate communications at the Container Corporation of America from 1964 to 1983 and research professor emeritus of graphic design at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he taught from 1984 to 2000.

This event will launch Vision, the definitive volume on his life’s work, which will be available exclusively and for the first time at this event. In addition, guests will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The event culminates in an interview with Massey by noted design historian Victor Margolin, followed by a panel discussion including Zoë Ryan, Curator of Design and Architecture at the Art Institute of Chicago, Marcia Lausen, Director of the School of Design at UIC, and Bart Crosby, President of Crosby Associates.

Ticket for the evening are available for purchase on Eventbrite, and more information is also available on the event’s Facebook page.
