Series Description

Broadcast Feb. 7 and 14, 1966 and August 1 and 8, 1966

Since World War II the artist, as student and teacher, has become the New Man on Campus. To learn why, National Educational Television asked WGBH to visit Yale University, to watch student and faculty in the School of Art and Architecture at work.

The first program demonstrates in words and action the relationship between artist and teacher. The second program studies the art teacher, specifically. The third program looks at the work of the graphic artist, from simple letter patterns to intricate trademarks and photo essays. The fourth program takes a look at the young architect in training.

See February and August 1966 Program Guides for descriptions. Series release date: 2/7/1966

Program Description

Cameras follow Stuart Baxter, a second year student at Yale’s School of Art and Architecture, as he redesigns a high rise office building presently under construction and then faces a jury of the Yale faculty who compare his work with that of the actual building going up in New Haven.

Russell Morash directed.
