Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Typographically Speaking: The Art of Matthew Carter

Opening on September 9th and continuing through December 7th, UMBC's Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Typographically Speaking: The Art of Matthew Carter. Organized by the Library Gallery with guest curator Margaret Re, assistant professor of visual arts at UMBC, the exhibition will examine the significant contributions of Matthew Carter to the field of visual communications. Mr. Carter is one of the pre-eminent type designers of the 20th century and a historian of printing. His career has encompassed the typographical revolution which evolved from working with the Enschedé printing house, where he learned how to cut metal type, to Carter & Cone, one of the first independent digital typefoundries. Typefaces to his credit include ITC Galliard, ranked as one of the most significant design contributions of the twentieth-century and Verdana, likely to be ranked as one of the most significant design contributions of the twenty-first century.

Center for Art and Visual Culture presents Maria Elena González: Selected Works 1996 - 2002

UMBC's Center for Art and Visual Culture presents Maria Elena González: Selected Works 1996 - 2002. This exhibition, curated by Renée van der Stelt, features recent sculptures and drawings by emerging artist Maria Elena González, a Cuban-American artist from New York City. The exhibition will also introduce her public sculpture called Magic Carpet/Home, which will be installed in City Springs Park, near five Baltimore public housing projects, in the spring of 2003. An educational outreach program will accompany the exhibition and public sculpture. Maria Elena González has been investigating the possibilities of formal sculpture for over a decade. Her work accesses elements of sculpture while reworking what these elements represent, complicating our interaction with form to evaluate identity, emotion, history and the nature of metaphor. On Thursday, September 12, the artist will speak from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in the Center's Gallery. The opening reception will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
