Graphic Design of Milton Glaser on display at BYU Museum of Art

The Brigham Young University Museum of Art is hosting a new exhibit, "Just Enough is More: The Graphic Design of Milton Glaser," in the Marian Adelaide Morris Cannon Gallery beginning Friday, June 30.

The exhibit, which contains approximately 100 works, will include original drawings, sketchbooks, paintings, lithographs and mass-produced posters of Glaser's iconic creations. Viewers will get an intimate look at the artist's design process by exploring the evolution of his designs as well as examining the way he uses conceptual elements in his creations.

"Being a child of modernism, I have heard this mantra all my life: Less is more," Glaser said. "One morning upon awakening I realized that it was total nonsense, it is an absurd proposition and [is] also fairly meaningless. I have an alternative to the proposition that I believe is more appropriate: 'Just enough is more.'"

The exhibit will be on display in the museum until Oct. 30.

400 million voting records show persistent gaps in voter turnout by race, age, and political affiliation

August 10, 2022
A new study from BYU and the University of Virginia analyzed 400 million voter records from elections in 2014 and 2016 and found that minority citizens, young people, and those who support the Democratic Party are much less likely to vote than whites, older citizens, and Republican Party supporters. Moreover, those in the former groups are also more likely to live in areas where their neighbors are less likely to vote.
