CADVC partners with The Society for History and Graphics (SHAG) and John Hopkins University to screen ART & COPY in the gallery theatre. Art & Copy is a film about about advertising and inspiration. Directed by Doug Pray, it reveals the work and wisdom of some of the most influential advertising creatives of our time--people who've profoundly impacted our culture, yet are virtually unknown outside their industry. Exploding forth from advertising's "creative revolution" of the 1960s, these artists and writers all brought a surprisingly rebellious spirit to their work in a business more often associated with mediocrity or manipulation: George Lois, Mary Wells, Dan Wieden, Lee Clow, Hal Riney, and others featured in Art & Copy were responsible for "Just Do It," "I Love NY," "Where's the Beef?," "Got Milk?," "Think Different," and brillant campaigns for evverything from cars to presidents.
