The People’s Art, with Julie Goldsmith

Julie Goldsmith, Manager of the Chicago Tribune Historical Collection at Michigan State University, discusses “The People’s Art: The Chicago Tribune’s Transformation of Visual Journalism and Printing in the Twentieth Century."  As Julie discovered, The Chicago Tribune is noteworthy for its printing innovations in the early twentieth century.  In hopes of bringing quality art to the general public through its newspaper, Tribune staff developed mass production techniques to produce quality color. This talk discusses techniques created by the Tribune staff, the artistic styles represented in the newspaper, and their effect on the reading public.
