The furniture people of Stanley VanDerBeek

Milton Glaser Collection: Box 112, Folder 24, Push Pin Graphic (undated)

Stan VanDerBeek (1927-1984) was best known as an experimental filmmaker (see some of his films here) but he was also a gifted painter and sculptor. This undated issue of the Push Pin Graphic features photographs of VanDerBeek’s whimsical creations.

Milton Glaser Collection Box 67, Folder 12 Vanderbeek poster for Visual Arts Gallery.

This article reminded me that VanDerBeek’s work was later featured in a 1966 exhibition (curated by Shirley Glaser) at the Visual Arts Gallery at the School of Visual Arts. The exhibition poster was designed by Milton Glaser.
