The Art and Design of the Doomsday Clock

May 15, 6:00PM – 9:00PM

The Doomsday Clock has been called "the most iconic graphic design of the twentieth century" and it continues to stop the news cycle around the world at its yearly setting. This program will explore Martyl's role as a Chicago artist, and the mid-century modern influences that helped her create the iconic Doomsday Clock, and will feature leading experts from disciplines of art, design, and history in a discussion led by Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists president and CEO Rachel Bronson. The program is part of Art Design Chicago, a year-long series exploration of the city's art and design history and legacy, led by the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
