The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) will present "Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design," celebrating one of the 20th century's most acclaimed designers, on Monday, November 14, at 7 p.m. at MoMA in New York City. The evening's special guests will include design historian Pat Kirkham; designer and writer Chip Kidd; and graphic designer Kyle Cooper, who has created title sequences for "Seven" (1995), "X-Men: First Class" (2011), the "Spider-Man" trilogy and others. The event is part of To Save and Project: The Ninth MoMA International Festival of Film Preservation, and will also feature the premiere of the Academy Film Archive's new restoration of Bass's Oscar®-winning short "Why Man Creates" (1968).  

Bass, who created some of the most compelling images of postwar visual culture, often in collaboration with his wife Elaine, permanently transformed the worlds of corporate identity and graphic design. He is also widely known for his design work in film, particularly his iconic title sequences, and for his collaborations with Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger and Martin Scorsese. Bass died in 1996.

This presentation also marks the publication of a new book, Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design, designed by Jennifer Bass (Saul's daughter) and written by Kirkham, who knew Bass personally.

Tickets to "Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design" are available online at http://www.moma.org/visit/calendar/films/1210. Tickets are $12 each. MoMa is located at 11 West 53rd Street in New York City. For more information, visit www.oscars.org.
