“I Love New York” design legend Milton Glaser will debut three new works this week in places that can always use more love: New York City subway stations. The three posters, according to Glaser, are a direct counterpoint to President Trump’s attack on humanity and reflect the designer’s commitment to justice using art and design to inspire social engagement. Milton’s signs join the School of Visual Arts’ enduring “Underground Images” ad campaign which has for the past half-century featured the work of a roster of A-list current and former design faculty including Ivan Chermayeff, Edel Rodriguez, Paula Scher and Tom Geismar in NYC subways. The series has challenged millions of New Yorkers to “think big, take chances and never stop learning. ”
