The furniture people of Stanley VanDerBeek

Stan VanDerBeek (1927-1984) was best known as an experimental filmmaker (see some of his films here) but he was also a gifted painter and sculptor. This undated issue of the Push Pin Graphic features photographs of VanDerBeek’s whimsical creations.

This article reminded me that VanDerBeek’s work was later featured in a 1966 exhibition (curated by Shirley Glaser) at the Visual Arts Gallery at the School of Visual Arts. The exhibition poster was designed by Milton Glaser.
