Otis Shepard and Dorothy Van Gorder were two gifted artists who married and teamed up to produce some of the most eye-catching and beautiful outdoors advertising in the middle decades of the 20th Century. Through their friendship with P.K. Wrigley of Wrigley’s gum, they also got to completely redesign Catalina Island and the Chicago Cubs. Their graphic art helped bring modernist design to America and helped to visually define an era. Tune in tonight when Inquiry talks with art director and design historian NORMAN HATHAWAY. With writer and editor Dan Nadel, he has written a stunningly beautiful book about these two unrecognized graphic artists who helped create the look of modern America: DOROTHY AND OTIS: DESIGNING THE AMERICAN DREAM.
