Paul Rand was a giant of American design, whose influential career spanned the second half of the twentieth century. His visionary and pithy conceptions of corporate and non-profit brand identities—though often graphically minimal—embody the artist’s complex philosophy, interest in modernist aesthetics, and singular wit. This exhibition features posters, book covers, and packaging designs from Rand’s beginnings as a pro bono designer for arts and culture publications like Direction magazine to his decades of crafting trailblazing corporate design for companies such as IBM.

Proof: The Ryoichi Excavations

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 3, 2019

,

The story of Japanese archaeologist Ryoichi and evidence of his worldwide excavations are explored by Patrick Nagatani in this series of photographs. Nagatani presents a narrative of Ryoichi’s archeological work, supported by images of excavation sites, unearthed artifacts, and Ryoichi’s own journal pages. According to the photographs, Ryoichi discovered evidence of an automobile culture buried at sites across several continents: Stonehenge, the Grand Canyon, and a necropolis in China. This provocative and playful series compels viewers to reflect on how photographs and institutions, such as museums, shape our knowledge of the past and present. Free

Monster Drawing Rally

Fri., Dec. 14, 6:30 p.m.

Ready! Set! Draw! MOCAD’s 6th annual Monster Drawing Rally is both a public event and fundraiser featuring 100 artists — but there’s a catch. All eyes are on the artists who will be given two one-hour shifts to draw in front of a live audience. MOCAD’s annual event exposes an otherwise private process behind the madness. From watercolors, ink, acrylic, and collage, artists will have their pick of materials and mediums to turn an idea into a piece of art. Each piece of art will be made immediately available for purchase for $40. Jamall Bufford of the Black Opera will MC the event and music will be provided by Lady Monix. $10, $40 for art
