The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Department of Art and Design will welcome world-renowned designer and artist Stefan Sagmeister for a free lecture and presentation at 7 p.m. on March 3 in Young Auditorium as part of The Annette and Dale Schuh Visiting Artist Endowment project.
Speaking on “Why Beauty Matters,” Sagmesiter will use examples from architecture, design and science to show that beauty is no mere surface strategy. He will try to prove that we not only feel differently when surrounded by beauty, but we also behave differently.
Stefan Sagmeister formed the New York-based Sagmeister Inc. in 1993 and since has designed for clients as diverse as the Rolling Stones, HBO and the Guggenheim Museum. He is the author of several books including “Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far,” “Sagmeister & Walsh: Beauty,” and “Sagmeister: Made You Look.”
