Belle Lettres
The Art of Design

Belle Lettres

Belle Lettres, or Beautiful Letters in French, at the SF MoMA presents the work of several prestigious graphic designers. Several years ago, the SF MoMA started acquiring works of graphic design and began hanging these works on their walls. When did the cross over between design and art occur, and whether a divide between the fields even exists. These issues are explored with Jennifer Morla of Morla Design and Jack Stauffacher who operated the Greenwood Press in San Francisco since 1947. Curators Darrin Alfred and Ruth Keffler also chime in.
