Cooper Hewitt, Dress Code, AIGA/New York and Milton Glaser, recipient of the 1972 AIGA Medal and 2004 National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement, celebrate the release of the short film “I Heart NY.”

“I Heart NY” takes as its subject design legend Milton Glaser (born June 26, 1929), creator of the iconic I Heart NY logo, cofounder of New York magazine, and the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts. The film chronicles the origin and ongoing meaning of the I Heart NY logo, from its creation during the 1970s economic downturn, when the city was near bankruptcy, to the present day, when New York City is in a moment of both prosperity and growing political uncertainty.

Glaser will talk with designer and Dress Code cofounder, Dan Covert.
