‘Julius Friedman: Fifty Year Retrospective’

Julius Friedman is not that old, is he? With a retrospective that covers 50 years, he must certainly be coming up on legend status. “Julius Friedman: Fifty Year Retrospective” features over 200 of his eye-catching posters. You probably have seen the graphic designer’s work; his signature style relies heavily on powerful images with few, if any, words. His most famous poster may be the ballerina pointe shoe balanced atop an egg, which he did for the Louisville Ballet. I have a particular fondness for his “Fresh Paint” poster of three egg yolks in primary colors of red, blue and yellow. The exhibition will also show his recent photography, as well as a new poster he designed to accompany the retrospective.
