One Wilde One

January 19, 2010

For those who may have missed seeing The Wilde Years: Four Decades of Shaping Visual Culture when it was on view at the Visual Arts Gallery, it’s still possible to explore the far-reaching influence of BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department Chair Richard Wilde. In conjunction with the show, faculty member Benita Raphan directed The Wilde Ones, a short documentary that pays tribute to Wilde’s 40th anniversary with the College:

A look at the documentary by the blog Digital Buyology described it as, “built around a series of interviews with some of Wilde’s most accomplished professors and industry icons, including George Lois, Paula Scher, Carin Goldberg, James Victore, Paul Sahre and Gail Anderson, extolling the enthusiasm, professionalism, consistency and brilliance that helped Richard build the school into one of the world’s preeminent graphic design and advertising institutions.”
