Inge Druckrey is a designer and educator. She is one of the first people who brought the Swiss school of design to the United States. For over 40 years Inge taught design students how to see more critically. Inge Druckrey received her state diploma in Graphic Design from the Kunstgewerbeschule Basel, Switzerland in 1965 where she was a student of Armin Hofmann and Emil Ruder. Teaching to See is a documentary film by Andrei Severny focusing on Inge’s approach to design and education.
Corita Kent, aka Sister Mary Corita Kent, (1918-1986) was an artist, educator and active member of the Roman Catholic order of Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles. During the upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s, she created several hundred posters, book covers and murals, often combining popular culture and spiritual texts in her work. She worked almost exclusively with silkscreen as a medium for her socially-engaged art making. Corita earned her BA from Immaculate Heart College and her MA at the University of Southern California in Art History. She taught at the Immaculate Heart College and was the chairman of its art department.
Barbara Glauber is a designer and educator. She runs her New York-based studio, Heavy Meta, focusing on the design of publications, information graphics, and other materials for clients in the arts, education, and entertainment industries. Barbara recently completed the design of a monograph of Corita Kent’s work titled Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent for the Tang Museum at Skidmore College. Barbara received her BFA from SUNY Purchase in 1984 and her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts in 1990. She was appointed to the Yale Design faculty in 1995 and is currently Critic in Graphic Design.
