Helvetica event at the Philoctetes Center

This Saturday in New York City, the Philoctetes Center for the Multidisciplinary Study of Imagination (whew) presents Helvetica: Typography and Literacy: a free screening of Helvetica and all-star roundtable discussion. The film will screen at 1pm, followed by a roundtable at 2:30pm with myself, lettering artist Christopher Calderhead, New York Times Magazine Art Director Arem Duplessis, calligrapher Elinor Aishah Holland, and artist Elaine Lustig Cohen, moderated by SVA design god and man-of-a-thousand-design-books Steven Heller. Four big reasons to go: 1) It’s free (first come, first seated) 2) This roundtable is
going to be crazy 3) It might be the only public Helvetica screening I’ll be participating in this year 4) The Philoctetes Center got burned in the Madoff scandal, lost their funding, and could really use your support Helvetica: Typography and Literacy Saturday, January 10, 1pm 247 E. 82nd Street, NYC Hope to see you there, -Gary

Gary, I'll try to make it. Are you giving away any Helvetica or Objectified goodies?
