The Poster Art of Jacqueline Casey
Poster design was the ultimate expression of Casey's art. She adopted the new Swiss typefaces Helvetica and Univers almost exclusively, combining typography with bold geometric forms and contrasting planes of color. The precision and clarity of post-war Swiss design, on which her work was based, was tempered with metaphor, witty word puzzles and double meanings appropriate for her academic audience. Using striking colors, humor and modernity, her work enlivened drab walls across the MIT campus for three decades.
On view beginning Thursday, June 7 in the Compton Gallery, MIT Museum, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Building 10, Room 150, Open Daily 10a.m.-5p.m., Free admission
