"That's It"—Seymour Chwast at the Corcoran

Seymour Chwast signing a copy of his new graphic novel, Dante's Divine Comedy, at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design.

The sun was going down in an unusually hot September evening when a somewhat nervous Maria Habib appeared on stage to introduce Seymour Chwast to a crowded auditorium. The audience included Bob Capps and Pat Taylor, former advisory board members for the communication design program. Habib, director of design at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, referred to Chwast as one of her idols, "a revolutionary, a designer, an illustrator, an entrepreneur, and a cultural icon."
