SVA Subway Series Hall of Fame: George Tscherny 04:21

Since the 1950s, the School of Visual Arts has commissioned some of the greatest graphic designers and artists—all faculty members of the College—to create posters for New York City subway platforms. In this video series SVA has asked some of its most revered designers to reflect on the posters they have created and give some insight into their practice. Here, George Tscherny speaks about the posters and other works he's designed in his long and prolific career. Tcherny, born in Hungary in 1924, received the AIGA Medal in 1988 and was inducted into the Art Directors Hall of Fame in 1997. Directed and edited by Nicolas Heller Cinematography by Oliver Anderson Color by Alan Gordon
