BATMAN (1966)

Through December 10
Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television
Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture

Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television is the first exhibition to explore how avant-garde art influenced and shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s. During this period, the pioneers of American television — many of them young, Jewish, and aesthetically adventurous — had adopted modernism as a source of inspiration. Revolution of the Eye looks at how the dynamic new medium, in its risk-taking and aesthetic experimentation, paralleled and embraced cutting-edge art and design.

The forces that contributed to the founding of UMBC — from emerging need triggered by the post-World War II baby boom to a higher education ideal conceptualized by Chancellor Albin O. Kuhn — converged on September 19, 1966 with the commencement of the first classes at the new university. This exhibition tells some of the many stories of the university’s exciting beginning and continuing development through items selected from UMBC’s University Archives including photographs, documents, objects, books and ephemera.
